"Slightly-Off-Specification Failures in the Time-Triggered Architecture";
Slightly-Off-Specification (SOS) failures can occur at the interface between the analog and the digital world. If an erroneous node in a distributed system produces an output signal (in time or value) slightly outside the specified window, some nodes will correctly receive this signal, while others might fail to receive it. Such a scenario will result in an inconsistent state of the distributed system. In this paper we present the observed temporal SOS failures in the Time-Triggered Architecture with the bus interconnection structure during the execution of the software implemented fault injection in the TTP/C communication controller. Solutions to avoid the occurrence of the temporal SOS failures in the Time-Triggered Architecture have been analyzed and presented here.
