I. OVERVIEWGuaranteed Online Diagnostics (GOLD) is a diagnostic procedure which can be employed to determine or identify defective components in a failing circuit without backtracking after each move of a test probe. This result is achieved by using three dynamic tables. After each probe move, the tables are updated and the result is then analyzed. The analysis either results in another probe move or the identification of a defective component.
