A watchdog processor (WDP) is a relatively simple coprocessor built for concurrent, information compaction based error detection in the main program control flow.A new algorithm called SEIS (Signature Encoded Instruction Stream) is presented for assigning signatures to high levelinstructions. The main idea of this method is to embed the information… CONTINUE READING
