<p>A new technique for estimating a tight lower bound of the detection probabilities for single faults at any internal signal line in a combinational circuit for random testing is presented. This lower bound is calculated from the detection probabilities of all single faults at the primary input lines in a linear time. The technique relies on the relationship between the detection probabilities of dominating and dominated faults in the considered combinational circuit.</p>
