Core-cell stability represents the ability of the core-cell to keep the stored data. With the rapid development of semiconductor memories, their test is becoming a major concern in VDSM technologies. It provides information about the SRAM design reliability, and its effectiveness is therefore mandatory for safety applications. Existing core-cell stability Design-for-Test (DfT) techniques consist in controlling the voltage levels of bit lines to apply a weak write stress on the core-cell under test. If the core-cell is weak, the weak write stress induces the faulty swap of the core-cell.
