Abstract: Necessary and sufficient conditions for an exhaustive functional test (checking experiment) of various latches are derived. These conditions are used to derive minimum-length checking experiments. The checking experiment for the D-latch is simulated using an HSpice implementation of the transmission gate latch. All detectable stuck-at, stuck-open, stuck-on, and bridging faults are detected.
