Multi-channel fault-tolerant onboard computer frames of critical application have investigated. Decreasing latent fault detection time at usage hardware synchronization components of processes in channels have defined. Advantage of lockstepped hardware voting majority frames construction with interchannel compare components for control system on top of critical application have demonstrated
