Build In Testing (BIT)

Hi,

Any one can explain me what is Build in testing BIT? Is it something like POST in our PC motherboard BIOS? How do we usually impliment it in our circuit design?

Re: Build In Testing (BIT)

Hi

BIT is software for testing hardware element on your board:

For instance - let assume you have an EEPROM memory on board and you would like to test it

You will write a routine (best to use the driver interface already written for it) who handle writing to the EEPROM, reading back the written data and comparing the written data and read back data

If the data is the same - then you can assume that the device is operating

All the best
