NAME

       scapin - Scan path insertion

SYNOPSIS

       scapin [-VRB] [-P file] Input_name Path_name Output_name

DESCRIPTION

       SCAPIN is an automatic scan path generator for gate level netlists.  SCAPIN inserts a scan
       path in the netlist Input_name and drives a  new  netlist  Output_name.   This  scan  path
       contains  all  registers  specified  in  the  file Path_name.path (see below for the exact
       syntax).  SCAPIN adds also  3  new  connectors  in  the  netlist:  scan_in,  scan_out  and
       scan_test  in  order  to  control  the scan path.  Eventually SCAPIN adds an output buffer
       before the output connector scan_out (option -B).

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       MBK_WORK_LIB(1)
                 indicates the path to the read/write directory for the session.

       MBK_IN_LO(1)
                 indicates the input netlist file format.

       MBK_OUT_LO(1)
                 indicates the output netlist file format.

       SCAPIN_PARAM_NAME
                 indicates the location of a parameter file (with extention  .scapin)  containing
                 the  properties  (ports  name,  models name etc ...) of all cells needed for the
                 scan path insertion.  (see below for the exact syntax)

OPTIONS

       -V        Sets verbose mode on.  Each step is displayed on the standard output.

       -R        All registers of the scan path are replaced by an equivalent scannable  register
                 cell  (called  reg-mux).  (With the default option a simple multiplexor is added
                 just before all registers of the scan path).

       -B        Adds an output buffer before the output connector scan_out.

       -P file   Specifies a parameter file (with extention .scapin) containing the properties of
                 all cells needed for the scan path insertion.  (see below for the exact syntax)

       Path_name Specifies  a parameter file (with extention .path) containing an ordered list of
                 all instances (registers) of the scan path.  It contains also the name of the  3
                 connectors scan_in, scan_out and scan_test.  (see below for the exact syntax)
