The number of (random) patterns required for random testing of RAMs (random-access memories), when classical fault models including pattern-sensitive faults are considered is determined. Markov chains are a powerful tool for this purpose. Single faults are considered first, and the influence of different parameters is analyzed. Double faults are then considered and arguments are presented to ex
