Abstract : The report describes a set of techniques which can be used to design and construct self-repairing digital systems via spare parts switching. A discussion is presented of reliability results obtained from simulation of different switching strategies. A description of the proposed self-repair demonstration model computer is given with its associated fault detecting and locating techniques applied to each section of the computer. The appendix of this report is devoted entirely to techniques of self-repair in memory system via coding and in conjunction with spare switching. (Author)
