    Transient errors caused by terrestrial radiation pose a major barrier to robust system design. A system's susceptibility to such errors increases in advanced technologies, making the incorporation of effective protection mechanisms into chip designs essential. A new design paradigm reuses design-for-testability and debug resources to eliminate such errors. View full abstract»

    Separate hardware- and software-only engineering approaches cannot meet the increasingly complex requirements of embedded systems. HW/SW interface codesign would enable the integration of components in heterogeneous multiprocessors. The authors analyze the evolution of this approach and define a long-term roadmap for future success. View full abstract»

    A proposed modular framework for assessing power consumption of embedded systems early in the design cycle can be extended to any performance metric and uses a high level of abstraction, leading to a faster execution time. Experimental results indicate that the approach is within 20 percent of gate-level estimation and executes three orders of magnitude faster. View full abstract»

    The greatest professional responsibility is to act in the best interests of the society to which the profession owes its status. By definition, human society's greatest interest is its continued existence. It seems the greatest threat to that continuance - climate change - is at last being given credence beyond scientific and environmental circles. The computing profession would play a crucial rol...
