—Of a multitude of algorithms used for fault
diagnosis and testing of digital circuits, VICTOR stands out
because of its multi-step approach to determine the test vectors
needed for detection of a particular fault. In this paper, we have
presented the procedure used by VICTOR to determine test
patterns for a particular fault, first by hand-calculations and
then with the help of a simulation program developed by us for
this algorithm. The results of our simulation are consistent with
those obtained manually which confirms the veracity and
usefulness of our developed software.
