This paper presents a current sensor that detects defects in CMOS integrated circuits using the current testing technique. The current sensor is built in a CMOS integrated circuit to test an abnormal current. The proposed circuit has a very small impact on the performance of the circuit under test during the normal mode. In the testing mode, the proposed circuit detects the abnormal current caused by permanent manufacturing defects and determines whether the circuit under test is defect-free or not. The proposed current sensor is simple and requires no external voltage and current sources. Hence, the circuit has less area and performance degradation, and is more efficient than any previous works. The validity and effectiveness are verified through the HSPICE simulation on circuits with defects.
