The authors<sup>1</sup>have used a coding theory approach in an attempt to design fault-detecting and fault-tolerant asynchronous sequential machines. While the method appears to be sound from theoretical aspects, actual attempts to implement these design procedures reveal a serious shortcoming which should be made known.
Asynchronous sequential machine design, fault detection, fault-tolerant design, fault masking, reliability, self-testable machines.
