3.2.4. Data seed field, MBIR[19:16]

The four-bit data seed field supplies the background data for the test algorithm at instruction load.


In the Go/No-Go algorithm, the Read Write Read March (y-fast) and Bang algorithms do not use the data seed value. See Table 3.11 for the data used in the Go/No-Go algorithm.

The data seed enables you to select values stored into arrays for IDDQ ATPG, or to select data words to search for unexpected sensitivities during march or bit-line stress tests. The MBIST engine replicates the four bits of data 16 times to give the full 64 bits of data required on the MBISTDIN[63:0] port of the ARM L210 MBIST interface.
