A flexible embedded test solution for high-speed analogue front-end subsystems is presented. A novel concept of a flexible test solution that addresses virtual component test requirements in particular is introduced. The integration and application of the non-invasive digital test solution is demonstrated for a representative design. Its area overhead is assessed for different depths in on-chip test evaluation.
