Three Myths About Embedded Chips



Roleigh Martin lists three myths about embedded chips and y2k compliance. All three are being ignored by the state of Minnesota in its quest for compliance.

* * * * * *

(a) vendor statements about embedded systems Year 2000 compliance are substantially reliable and relevant to an end-user (an assumption documented many times to be false);

(b) all copies of an identical device model will behave the same as they roll-over of the century (that is, the false assumption that 'type testing' is always valid);

(c) stand-alone equipment Year 2000 compliance statements answers the question whether such equipment embedded in a network or complex of instruments will handle the roll-over of the century (that is, the false assumption that component compliance always equals implementation compliance).
