A New Approach to the Evaluation of the Reliability of Digital Systems
March 1980 (vol. 29 no. 3)
pp. 261-267
I. Koren, Department of Electrical Engineering, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology
Signal reliability, as a measure of digital systems' reliability, has not been used until recently due to lack of efficient evaluation methods. A new approach to the evaluation of signal reliability is presented in this work. A reliability transfer function of digital systems is defined and a method for its evaluation is presented. This approach provides a new insight into the problem of digital system reliability. Furthermore, it simplifies signal reliability calculations and can easily be mechanized.
