    In this paper a modified architecture for at-speed scan testing is presented. This new architecture addresses the trend in the semiconductor industry for increased at-speed structural testing. The proposed architecture offers reduced time for standard at-speed testing, and, in particular, substantial savings for the repeated atspeed testing required for microprocessor speed and performance binning. The architecture has been demonstrated on UMC 0.18μm and has achieved with little die overhead.
