Owing to the sequential behavior of CMOS logic circuits in the presence of a stuck-open fault, it is required that an initialization input followed by a test input be applied to detect such a fault. However, a test set generated under a static behavior assumption can be invalidated in the presence of time-skews in the variable changes and/or unequal delays in the different interconnections of the circuits. The authors present a necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of a test set that cannot be invalidated under dynamic behavior (variable delays assumed), for an AND-OR or OR-AND CMOS realization for any given function. They also introduce a hybrid CMOS realization which, for any given function, is guaranteed to have a valid test set under the assumption of dynamic behavior.
