Kuhn, followed by Tsuchiya and Kikuno, have developed a hierarchy of relationships among several common types of faults (such as variable and expression faults) for specification-based testing by studying the corresponding fault detection conditions. Their analytical results can help explain the relative effectiveness of various fault-based testing(More)
A functional demonstration of bit-interleaving TDM downstream protocol for passive optical networks (Bi-PON) is reported. The proposed protocol presents a significant reduction in dynamic power consumption in the customer premise equipment over the conventional TDM protocol. It allows to select the relevant bits of all aggregated incoming data immediately(More)
Fault-based testing aims at selecting test cases to guarantee the detection of certain prescribed faults in programs. The detection conditions of single faults have been studied and used in areas like developing test case selection strategies, establishing relationships between faults and investigating the fault coupling effect. It is common, however, for(More)
Detection conditions of specific classes of faults have recently been studied by many researchers. Under the assumption that at most one of these faults occurs in the software under test, these fault detection conditions were mainly used in two ways. First, they were used to develop test case selection strategies for detecting corresponding classes of(More)
