Kaleidoscope tool is a parallel fault simulator with hybrid simulation capability. Kaleidoscope’s patent-pending technology enables multiple fault simulations in parallel for single-point or multi-point faults, both permanent and transient, achieving up-to 100x speedup of the total fault campaign compared to gate level fault campaign.
Kaleidoscope performs auto-classification of the campaign results and places the faults in one of the three categories.
- Alarm triggered – Credit for diagnostic coverage
- Error masked- Safe fault
- Alarm not triggered – Loss of diagnostic coverage
Note:- Patent Pending
