The impact of polynomial seeds on the effectiveness of a linear feedback shift register (LFSR)-based testing technique is studied. The results of the study show that when the characteristic polynomials in the test-pattern generator, as well as in the signature analyser, are of same order and primitive, then any change in polynomial seed does not affect the probability of aliasing errors. The conclusion of this study is substantiated with extensive simulation data.
