Abstract

In a system using a single power on/off switch to power up and down a system, a fault tolerant design can be achieved by using a double pole switch in conjunction with redundant switch monitoring & reporting paths, such paths furthermore can be coupled together to provide a thoroughly robust power on/off system implementation.
