This thesis presented a new method for testing routers and cores on Network-On-Chip (NoC) systems.It proposed a new algorithm for router testing that relies heavily on the reuse of the network infrastructure within an NoC. Possible wrapper architecture for the router was also presented. Combing the router and core wrapper into one wrapper can reduce the wrapper hardware and is important in the reuse of the network for router testing. Finally, an integrated algorithm for scheduling tests for routers and cores was presented. Simulations were run comparing results using this integrated algorithm to previous work based on boundary scan.
