A behavioral testability analysis technique is proposed for early prediction of testability by analyzing behavioral specifications written in VHDL. The technique extracts testability properties by an analysis of variable range, operation testability and statement reachability. It predicts the testability for the whole design with a low computational cost. Experimental results show that the behavior al testability analysis technique predicts the hard-to-test parts accurately and efficiently, and can be used to guide partial scan selection.
