For testing signal lines extending between semiconductor chips, special driver circuits and receivers are used. The driver circuits permit modulating the output level with an AC voltage. By a special line, this AC voltage is also fed to the receiver. If the signal line to be tested is non-defective, compensation of the output level modulation is effected in the receiver.
