Abstract

A signal-handling unit, such as peripheral equipment to a host processor, employs error detection and correction circuits for detecting errors and correcting detected errors. When such signal-handling units become prone to high error rates, even with the error detection and correction capabilities, signal data patterns are logged in real time and multiplexed with the corrected signal data such that diagnostic analysis close to real time and employing normal signal-handling operations is provided.
