scapin — Scan path insertion

Synopsis

scapin [-VRB] [-P file] Input_name Path_name Output_name

Description

SCAPIN is an automatic scan path generator for gate level netlists. SCAPIN inserts a scan path in the netlist Input_name and drives  a new netlist Output_name. This scan path contains all registers specified in the file Path_name.path (see below for the exact syntax). SCAPIN adds also 3 new connectors in the netlist: scan_in, scan_out and scan_test in order to control the scan path. Eventually SCAPIN adds an output buffer before the output connector scan_out (option -B).

Environment Variables

MBK_WORK_LIB(1)

indicates the path to the read/write directory for the session.

MBK_IN_LO(1)

indicates the input netlist file format.

MBK_OUT_LO(1)

indicates the output netlist file format.

SCAPIN_PARAM_NAME

indicates the location of a parameter file (with extention .scapin) containing the properties (ports name, models name etc ...) of all cells needed for the scan path insertion.  (see below for the exact syntax)

Options

-V

Sets verbose mode on. Each step is displayed on the standard output.

-R

All registers of the scan path are replaced by an equivalent scannable register cell (called reg-mux).  (With the default option a simple multiplexor is added just before all registers of the scan path).

-B

Adds an output buffer before the output connector scan_out.

-P file

Specifies a parameter file (with extention .scapin) containing the properties of all cells needed for the scan path insertion. (see below for the exact syntax)
