It is important to screen scan-path failures because scan-path failures affect product yield even though these are not related to the device functional operations. However, the additional efforts such as diagnosis are required to screen scanpath failures. In this paper, we propose a new test methodology to screen scan-path failures under the Automatic-Test-Pattern- Generation (ATPG) constraints and the multi-capture-clock condition without diagnosis. Experimental results show that the proposed methodology efficiently screens scan-path failures with high test coverage.
