Once the design architecture is confirmed (see the figure in Step 6: Determining Raw FIT), the diagnostics of the design must be implemented. This implementation requires the designer to update the documentation in the datapath analysis to reflect the additional logic. This means that all the affected logic block tabs must reflect the final state of the IP with the diagnostics added based on the updated architecture, including the new block 7 diagnostics and the additional internal connections and external connections for error notification.
