programming Testing where information about programming style, error-prone language constructs, and other programming knowledge is applied to select test data capable of detecting faults, either a specified class of faults or all possible faults. (1996-05-13)
noun, Numismatics. 1. a coin showing evidence of a mistake in its manufacture.
- Error correcting memory
storage (ECM) RAM using some kind of error detection and correction (EDAC) scheme. The two types of memory errors in RAM (especially DRAM) are “soft” errors due to radiation-induced bit switching, and “hard” errors due to the unexpected deterioration of a memory chip. Soft errors do not indicate lasting damage to the memory board, but […]
- Error detection and correction
algorithm, storage (EDAC, or “error checking and correction”, ECC) A collection of methods to detect errors in transmitted or stored data and to correct them. This is done in many ways, all of them involving some form of coding. The simplest form of error detection is a single added parity bit or a cyclic redundancy […]
