Design of Self-Checking Iterative Networks
September 1988 (vol. 37 no. 9)
pp. 1121-1125
The relevant definitions are given and a model of self-checking iterative network is presented. A general combinational circuit was developed that is totally self-checking and can detect an error on the input code lines and transmit the error to the output code lines. Thus, an error generated in a cell is transmitted from cell to cell until the last cell is reached. The error, and fault that ge
