    The development of compiler-based mechanisms to optimize the thermal profile of large register files to improve the processor reliability has become an important issue. Thermal hotspots have been known to cause severe reliability issues, while the thermal profile of the devices is also related to the leakage power consumption and the cooling cost. Register window-based architectures provide a rela... View full abstract»

    This letter proposes a classification algorithm to discriminate between recoverable and not recoverable faults occurring in static random access memory (SRAM)-based field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), with the final aim of devising a methodology to enable the exploitation of these devices also in space applications, typically characterized by long mission times, where permanent faults become a...

    The shrinking of process technologies in conjunction to the manufacturing and transient faults may be abundant in high density reconfigurable architectures. Design of reliable applications on such unreliable architectures requires techniques able to provide a balance between the desired fault masking and the associated performance and power degradation. Starting from a well established solution fo... View full abstract»

    Error resiliency has demonstrated significant robustness and energy benefits in superthreshold performance-constrained applications (Shanbhag, Proc. Des. Autom. Conf., Jun. 2010). In this letter, we study the impact of error resiliency, in particular algorithmic-noise tolerance (ANT) (Hedge and Shanbhag, IEEE Trans. VLSI Syst., vol. 17, no. 8, pp. 813-823, Dec. 2001), in subthreshold energy-constr... View full abstract»

  • Slack-Time Computation for Temporal Robustness in Embedded Systems

    We propose to handle execution duration overruns (temporal faults) in real-time embedded systems. When a temporal fault occurs, the slack time can be dynamically determined and assigned to the faulty task in order to complete its treatment. This mechanism improves the temporal robustness of real-time systems. We demonstrate that an approximate slack stealer algorithm like the minimal approximate s... View full abstract»

    This letter presents the design and evaluation of a coarse grained reconfigurable array, hardened against radiation induced transient errors. The architecture consists of an 8 × 8 array of reconfigurable cells, each provided with a built-in soft error detection and instruction roll-back control. We also present the communication management scheme between the processors in the presence of va... View full abstract»

  • Control Focused Soft Error Detection for Embedded Applications

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):127 - 130
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (270 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Advances in integrated circuits present several key challenges in system reliability as soft errors are expected to increase with successive technology generations. Computing systems must be able to continue functioning in spite of these soft errors, necessitating the development of new methods for self-healing circuits that can detect and recover from these errors. We present an area-efficient co... View full abstract»
