In this paper we propose an on-die monitoring scheme to detect and count transient faults (TFs) resulting, as well as not resulting in output SEs, affecting the inputs of data-path latches/flip-flops. This approach allows an early monitoring of the latches/flip-flops vulnerability to TFs, thus discovering intrinsic weaknesses of design or process. The proposed monitoring scheme features a very low impact on area overhead and power consumption, thus being suitable to be deployed within any IC.
