Abstract : This report is a companion report (Volume II) of TR-EE-82-21. this volume describes multifrequency testing of interconnected analog circuits assuming soft failures. In particular the report details two approaches to soft failure multifrequency diagnosis: the composite system transfer function approach and the tableau approach. The two approaches are evaluated theoretically and numerically with the tableau approach shown to be far superior.
