Equivalence amongst the single and double catastrophic component faults of a potentiometric DAC under steadystate dc conditions is investigated. Easily identifiable equivalent faults are shown to populate the fault list in significant numbers. By facilitating a systematic testdesign approach focused on the prevention of equivalent fault conditions during test, equivalent fault analysis is used to greatly increase the percentage of catastrophic component faults diagnosable with a Built-In Self… CONTINUE READING
