In this paper, we propose a new SystemC-based fault injection technique that has improved fault representation in visible and on-the-fly data and signal registers. The technique is minimum intrusive since it only requires replacing the original data or signal types to fault injection enabler types. We compare the proposed simulation technique with recently reported SystemC-based techniques and show that our technique has fast simulation speed, better fault representation, while maintaining simplicity and minimum intrusion. We demonstrate fault injection capabilities in a behavioural SystemC description of MPEG-2 decoder using proposed technique and show that up to 98.9% fault representation within data and signal registers can be achieved.
