7.1 About fault detection

The Cortex®‑R8 processor fault detection features report any detected error to the system, and correct any detected and correctable error.

When the system-on-chip reports a failure, the logging and status must provide all the required information to identify the source of the failure. The intention is to detect and correct the errors as much as possible, and identify them to the system.

For Error Correcting Code (ECC) on RAM, all errors explicitly seen must be reported, so that the error propagation is minimized.
