In bist (built in self test) how to calculate good known signature pattern which we store in ROM.
'bist' or do you mean POST (power-on self test)?

The pattern you store as a signature depends on what you're trying to identify. You need to provide more information, and you can also store it in EEPROM.

its BIST (built-in-self-test). we have to calculate the good signature with wich we compare the test pattern output to confirm whether those match or not . if match then there is no fault .

You can figure it out from the software if it is well enough documented and you have a lot of spare time but the usual way to generate the BIST "passed" signature is by running the self test on a known good unit. The signature depends wholly on the type and number of tests in the self-test routine. The signature will change if any tests are modified or added.

AFAIK signatures are not calculated -- they are observed. Why do you think they are calculated?
