This article describes a technique for providing a signature analysis test of on-card ROS (read-only storage) by first degating the ROS to permit the on-card microprocessor to fetch op codes from a functional test unit and place them at the beginning of RAM (random-access memory) space. The ROS is then enabled and cycled through a signature analysis verification controlled by the op codes stored in RAM.
