Microcomputers are increasingly being used in Flight Control Systems. The reliability of a microcomputer system depends on its configuration and its components. Thus, a complete knowledge of reliability of the components of the system is essential for designing a reliable system. Another important factor contributing to the reliability of a reconfigurable systens is the self test capability. Self test, a specially written program stored in computer's memory, initialises a sequence of logic operations which provides valuable diagnostic information for fault identification and reconfiguration. The extent to which the reliability can be enhanced by self test: depends on the percentage of its failure detection capability. In this report, the role of self test, its design, implementation and its quantification in a microprocessor based system has been presented.
