A general design approach for self-diagnosis of faulty clocking modules in a fault-tolerant clock synchronization (FTCS) system is presented. The approach is based on a statistical testing method. The major advantages are better self-stability control and lower overhead. The design methodology includes a self-diagnosis algorithm to transform a partially self-stabilizing clocking system into a s
