Subject: Software reliability calculations in PRISM
my question is about the software model input possibilities in PRISM.
I have got all hardware components in the system which is a medical X-Ray generator with few assembly units and hundrets of parts in the units. The software model of PRISM takes into account the "normal" software which we call the application software of our generator. Here I can do the calculation with Line of code, fault density etc. but how can I do reliability analysis for software in DSPs or FPGAs. E.g. for the DSPs it is about 90kb code in assembler what does it mean in line of code, how can I translate these data.
