The results are presented of one simulation-based fault characterization study for two classes of high electron mobility transistor GaAs logic circuits, and an approach to testing one class of functional faults of particular importance to GaAs circuits is provided. The fault characterization study indicates that the GaAs logic circuits are highly susceptible to faults resulting in timing errors. On the basis of the fault characterization results, a timing algebra test generation strategy is developed for detection of failures causing timing errors. The strategy is appropriate for detection of gate-level path faults as well as transistor-level branch faults.
