This paper proposes a delay fault test technique for ICs and PCBs with the boundary-scan architectures supporting ANSI/IEEE Std 1149.1-1990. The hybrid delay fault model, which comprises both of gate delay faults and path delay faults, is selected. We developed a procedure for testing delay faults in the circuits with typical boundary scan cells supporting the standard. Analyzing it,we concluded that it is impractical because the test clock must be 2.5 times faster than the system clock with the cell architect-ures following up the state transition of the TAP controller and test instruction set. We modified the boundary-scan cell and developed test instructions and the test procedure. The modified cell and the procedure need test clock two times slower than the system clock and support the ANSI/IEEE standard perfectly. A 4-bit ALU is selected for the circuits under test. and delay tests are simulated by the SILOS simulator. The simulation results ascertain the accurate operation and effectiveeness of the modified mechanism.
