SoC Test Scheduling Algorithm Using ACO-Based Rectangle Packing
This paper presents a new SoC test scheduling method based on an ant algorithm. The proposed scheduling algorithm formulates the SoC test scheduling problem as a rectangle bin packing problem and uses ACO to cover more solution space to increase the probability of finding optimal solutions. The experimental results conducted using ITC ’02 SoC benchmarks show that the proposed idea gives the test application time comparable to earlier researches in less calculation time.
