A comparative study on march tests for SRAMS

By Mrs. Princy.P and Dr. N.M Sivamangai


SRAMs are widely used in cache memories due to its infinite and very fast read/write operations. The ever increasing density of embedded memories on SoC’s (System on Chips) gives rise to many defects and faults which cannot be identified during the fabrication process. The advantages of March tests for fault\ud detection which make it acceptable for industries includes simplicity, high fault coverage and the linearity of test time with memory size.. High reliability is a major concern for memories if they are a part of control units implemented in hazardous environments. Even the occurrence of a single fault may lead to disasters.This emphasizes the importance of comparing and evaluating existing March tests considering all types of faults. All\ud the traditional tests concentrates on the probability of occurrence of a fault rather than its mere occurrence This paper analysis the various types of faults in SRAMs(Static Random Access Memories), evaluates various dedicated March tests considering the percentage of fault detection.\u
