As the sizes of (nano) device are aggressively scaled deep towards the nanometer regime, the design and manufacturing of future nano-circuits will become extremely complex and inevitably introduce more defects and their functioning will be adversely affected by transient faults. Therefore, accurately calculating the reliability of future designs will become a very important factor for nano-circuit designers as they investigate several design alternatives to optimize the trade-offs between the conflicting metrics of area-power-energy-delay versus reliability. This paper introduces a novel EDA tool for accurate calculation of future nano-circuits reliabilities. Our aim is to provide both educational and research institutions (as well as the semiconductor industry at a later stage) with an accurate and easy to use tool for comparing the reliability of different design alternatives, and for selecting the design that best fits a set of given (design) constraints.
