F)         An unrecoverable corruption of critical nonvolatile memory shall result in an error.  Upon detection, the device software shall cease to function.  Additionally, the critical nonvolatile memory error shall cause any communication external to the device to cease.


5)         Software Errors


A)        After a program interruption, a point of sale device shall recover to the state it was in immediately prior to the interruption occurring.


B)        After a program interruption, a kiosk shall recover to the state it was in immediately prior to the interruption, but shall not allow any further action by a patron without intervention by an attendant unless the kiosk is able to recover and complete any interrupted operation without loss or corruption of any locally stored nonvolatile memory or installed software.
