Abstract

Described is a technique providing a high-density solution for small, single-port arrays and a variety of multi-port array applications. In the large-logic chip environment, storage element macros may require special circuit implementation to incorporate some form of an array self-test. The described technique saves much of the area that would normally be devoted to enhance testability of these designs.
