To study the fault-diagnosis method for a class of multistage interconnection networks a general fault model is first constructed. Specific steps for diagnosing single faults and detecting multiple faults in interconnection networks such as the indirect binary n-cube network and the flip network are then developed. The following results are derived in this study: 1) independent of the network size, only four tests are required for detecting a single fault; 2) the number of tests required for… CONTINUE READING
