This work reveals additional timing difficulties by which concurrent error detection (CED) schemes can experience to deal efficiently with transients. It shows previously-unknown error scenarios where short-duration single transient faults in logic circuits succeed in erroneously inverting stored results but CED schemes fail in detecting even single soft errors. The paper demonstrates that typical CED code-based schemes for protecting logic circuits are not as capable as they have been claimed, and so timing conditions are suggested for a more efficient use of them.
