    Programmable Electronic Systems (PES) are a potentially good solution for safety protection applications. But a PES must utilize special circuits and special architectures to reduce the chances of failing dangerously. There are several critical design parameters to measure the effectiveness of these systems. Diagnostic `Coverage Factor' is one of these parameters that affects all architectures. This paper explains the tools used to measure and verify the diagnostic capability of a PES
