When ATPG errors

suppose an ATPG errors with slight probability p
p->0

now suppose it is used to calculate untestability of  a fault.

Let T be 1 if fault is testable, let T be 0 if fault is untestable.

Now, suppose we use an errorneous ATPG  be T OR A, where A = and(x1,x2......x_n)

where n->infinity.

the average <T OR A> for an untestable fault if n->infinity = <T> =  0  in RTG

T = T OR A for exactly for every case except 1 case, for an untestable fault.

Now, T OR A can be solved by deterministic ATPG, T OR A = 1.

<T OR A> = <T> = 0  , is untestable by RTG ATPG. <T OR A> = 0 , therefore has 0 solutions.

Proof

<T OR A> = 1/2^n

no. of solutions = <T OR A> * 2^n = (  1/2^n )*2^n
= lim episoln1,2->0 n->infinity (1/2^n -episoln1+episoln2)*2^n
as n->infinity select episoln1=1/2^n
= (0 +episoln2)*2^n
Select episoln2=0, such that episoln2*2^n =0
= 0
no. of solutions = 0;

T OR A has  1 solution by deterministic ATPG.

Therefore
solutions=  0 = 1

Suppose T is the output   T + 0 = T + solutions = T + 1, if T is 0 =  1, if T- 0 = = T - solutions = T - 1 if T is 1 = 0

untestable is testable, testable is untestable!
Such effects may be heuristically observable.

ATPG will remain unsolved

Suppose a cripple found a solution and
says it is solved, since a cripple found it , it is not solved.
