04782283 is referenced by 38 patents and cites 5 patents.

Apparatus is disclosed for establishing scan-ring testing circuitry and control logic therefor on CMOS integrated circuit chips which can then be tested thereby during fabrication, after wire bonding and packaging, and while assembled and connected with other components on a printed circuit board. Tri-state buffers fabricated on the IC chip within the scan-ring control circuitry facilitate the operation of the scan-ring testing circuitry in several distinct operating modes which enable the functional circuitry of the integrated circuit to be electrically isolated from the associated signal pads for testing of the functional circuitry independently of circuitry connected to the signal pads, and for testing circuitry connected to the signal pads independently of the function circuitry of the chip.
