The Design of TSC Error C/D Circuits for SEC/DED Codes
March 1988 (vol. 37 no. 3)
pp. 258-265
A design technique for totally self-checking (TSC) error correcting/detection (C/D) circuits of single error correcting, double error detection (SEC/DED) codes is described. The structure of these circuits achieves concurrent fault detection and location under normal input conditions. A separate internal fault indication is provided. This improves the reliability, maintainability, and availabil
