What is Built-In Self Test (BIST)?
BIST is the capability of a product to perform a functional test of itself. Some support from external equipment may be required. BIST usually involves special logic circuitry in the product to generate input stimuli and analyze test responses.

2000-09-01 DFT and BIST for SoC designs
Design for testability (DFT) and built-in self-test (BIST) techniques are widely publicized in SoC (Systems-on-Chip) designs, but are still often only thought of as "back end" concerns. In reality, the importance of these techniques insures the highest fault coverage and shortest production test time in the device design cycle.

2000-03-25 Non-contact test access for Surface Mount Technology IEEE 1149.1-1990
Mechanical and chemical process challenges initially limited acceptance of surface-mount technology (SMT). As those challenges have been overcome, another obstacle has become apparent: electronic test access. Through-hole components on a 100mil grid have allowed physical access. SMT, which has provided new levels of packing density has also denied physical test access. To overcome this challenge, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has sponsored a new standard, IEEE 1149.1-1990, the Standard Test Access Port and Boundary-Scan Architecture. This application note describes that standard by citing examples of the process.
