hello there,

I got my answer the post I have posted about Pattern Inflation.

Basically it is one of the drawback of Compression Technique. As we know by doing compression we have the advantages like reduction in TAT and TDV inspite of these advantages there are also some disadvantages of compression. They are 1) Pattern Inflation 2) Growth in Die size.

Pattern inflation is nothing but to maintain the test coverage at higher level as we required while compression we need to generate more no of patterns to do so. there fore the increase in no of patterns is referred as Pattern Inflation.
