Abstract

The on board computer systems have a high requirement on the reliability because of single event upset. So this paper analyzes the system reliability model, and presents a method to model the reliability of on board computer system. This paper defines the basic module of the system reliability using Markov model and proposes a system reliability prediction algorithm using reliability block diagram. By simplifying the reliability block diagram using the graph theory, to predict the reliability of a system.
