Fan-out-free networks of AND, OR, NOT, EXOR, and MAJORITY gates are considered. Boolean functions for which such networks exist are defined to be fan-out free. The paper solves the following problems regarding the fan-out-free networks and functions.
single fault location, Characterization of fan-out-free networks, combinational networks, counting of fan-out-free, fan-out-free networks, functional decomposition, localized fan outs, multiple fault detection
