Abstract

In order to prevent "racing" in LSSD test, usually multiple CCLOCK is required and as such, multiple physical pins are occupied by LSSD CCLOCK. Usually 3 to 5 cclocks are used in actual ASIC. This invention prevents racing condition in LSSD test without requiring multiple cclock. Below chart shows the circuit of this invention. Only one of the outputs of the decoder(indicated by A,B,C in the below chart) is active at a time so that only one cclock can be active at the same time, thus prevents the racing condition at LSSD test.
