Abstract

A method is proposed employing two integrated circuit (IC) chips for providing error detection and correcting (ECC) operations [1] when a single one of the IC chips is restricted in providing all the required outputs. Additionally, this development makes it possible to identify IC chip errors as well as to eliminate the performance impact associated with the exchange of partial check bits between chips.
