Measures of the Effectiveness of Fault Signature Analysis
June 1980 (vol. 29 no. 6)
pp. 510-514
J.E. Smith, University of Wisconsin-Madison
A linear feedback shift register can be used to compress a serial stream of test result data. The compressed erroneous bit stream caused by a fault is said to form the "signature" of the fault. Since the bit stream is compressed, however, it is possible for an erroneous bit stream and the correct one to result in the same signature.
Index Terms:
linear feedback shift registers, Data compression, dependent errors, fault detection, fault signature
