This tutorial presents an overview of the issues related to the test of
NoC-based systems. First, the main issues related to the test of complex
SoCs are reviewed are presented, as well as a brief summary of the main
techniques proposed so far. Then, the challenges to test NoC-based
systems are discussed and current test strategies are presented: re-use
of the network for core testing, test scheduling for the NoC reuse, test
access methods and interface, efficient re-use of the network, and
power-aware and thermal-aware NoC-based SoC testing. In addition, the
challenges and solutions for the NoC (interconnects, routers, and network
interface) test and diagnosis are presented.
