Abstract : The objective of this study was to investigate the practicality of applying multifunction self-repair circuit technology to the design of electronic digital equipment. The multifunction module was required to operate in a number of modes whereupon failures of its primary mode would be capable of switching to a secondary mode, thus achieving self-repair thereby reducing the number and types of spares required and significantly reducing the maintenance down time. A 4-bit, 2-register arithmetic processor was developed to demonstrate self-repair. (Author)
