Design of Diagnosable Sequential Machines Utilizing Extra Outputs
February 1974 (vol. 23 no. 2)
pp. 138-145
H. Fujiwara, Department of Electronic Engineering, Osaka University
This paper is concerned with the problem of designing easily testable sequential machines, output-observable machines, for which there exist very short checking experiments. A sequential machine for which any initial state can be uniquely determined only by the output response is said to be output-observable. An algorithm is developed to modify a given machine to an output-observable one by adding a minimum number of extra outputs. This method is based on the fact that the output-observable realization of a given machine M exists if and only if M is semi-FSR realizable (a special type of feedback shift register realization).
Index Terms:
Checking experiments, diagnosable sequential machines, fault detection, output-observable machines, semi-feedback shift register (FSR) realizability.
