Logic built-in self-test (or LBIST) is a form of built-in self-test (BIST) in which hardware and/or software is built into integrated circuits allowing them to test their own operation.
Scan chains are traditionally controlled by expensive external test equipment (ATE) * requires large ram for test vectors for high coverage * requires high speed electronics for at-speed test * expensive
The main advantage of LBIST is the ability to test internal circuits having no direct connections to external pins.
LBIST that requires additional circuitry increases the cost of the integrated circuit. Another disadvantage of LBIST is the possibility that the on-chip testing hardware itself can fail; external automated test equipment tests the integrated circuit with known-good test circuitry.

There are hacks are done in openlane script/tool to integrated the scan chain. The tool and scripts are updated in dineshannayya:mpw4 docker. Here are details on hacks:
Directory: OpenSTA (hacks/src/OpenSTA) Source Files: hacks/src/OpenSTA/network/ConcreteNetwork.cc hacks/src/OpenSTA/tcl/NetworkEdit.tcl hacks/src/OpenSTA/tcl/Sta.tcl Patch File: for OpenRoad docker hacks/patch/scan_swap.patch
Directory: OpenROAD Source Files: hacks/src/OpenROAD/Resizer.cc Patch File: for OpenRoad docker hacks/patch/resizer.patch
Directory: Openlane Source Files: hacks/src/openlane/io_place.py
Directory: Openlane Source Files: hacks/src/openlane/synth.tcl hacks/src/openlane/synth_top.tcl
all these hacks/patches are implemented inside dineshannayya:mpw4 docker
for logic bist to work properly, design should met these crieria.
Clock Doman: All the Sub block should be synchronous and use single clock
Reset: Scan Reset Bypass logic need to implemented
SRAM: SRAM input towards digital logic should have scan bypass
Register: All the Register should be able to re-initialize with reset, even the two dimensional FIFO.
Input: All the Input should be in known state, else add scan bypass logic
The simulation package includes the following tests:
make verify-wb_port make verify-user_basic make verify-user_mbist_test1 make verify-user_lbist make verify-wb_port SIM=RTL DUMP=OFF make verify-wb_port SIM=RTL DUMP=ON make verify-user_mbist_test1 SIM=RTL DUMP=OFF make verify-user_mbist_test1 SIM=RTL DUMP=ON make verify-user_lbist SIM=RTL DUMP=ON
