Abstract

Due to the growing importance of digital logic testing and fault simulation, a significant need is arising for introducing the basic concepts of fault diagnosis of digital circuits to students in the introductory digital systems design courses. This paper presents a description of an instructional software package (termed Nodes 3) developed at Penn State Altoona Campus and specifically targeted at the fault analysis and simulation aspect of digital system design. Nodes 3 does not merely internally implement a fault analysis algorithm, but rather, it graphically illustrates the steps, and thereby the logical resolution of a fault analysis technique.
