<p><b>Abstract</b>—Procedures for fault location in globally controlled and comparison-based multistage interconnection networks (MINs) are presented. The number of tests is constant or depends logarithmically on the network size. The tests are independent of the actual fault location and type which yields reduced time consumption and simple implementation. Furthermore, these procedures are well suited to be implemented for a built-in self test.</p>
