This book presents the development and experimental validation of the structural test strategy called Oscillation-Based Test - OBT in short. The results presented here assert, not only from a theoretical point of view, but also based on a wide experimental support, that OBT is an efficient defect-oriented test solution, complementing the existing functional test techniques for mixed-signal circuits.
Addresses both, the industry world which can apply its contents to develop new alternatives to complement the existing functional test techniques for mixed-signal circuits, as well as the academic world to prepare teachers in Electronic Engineering in the new trends in the test of mixed-signal circuits
