A practical characterization of a NASA SpaceCube application through fault emulation and laser testing
Found in: 2013 43rd Annual IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN)
By John Paul Walters,Kenneth M. Zick,Matthew French
Issue Date:June 2013
pp. 1-8
Historically, space-based processing systems have lagged behind their terrestrial counterparts by several processor generations due, in part, to the cost and complexity of implementing radiation-hardened processor designs. Efforts such as NASA's SpaceCube ...
 
Toward Physically-Adaptive Computing
Found in: Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems, IEEE International Conference on
By Kenneth M. Zick, John P. Hayes
Issue Date:October 2010
pp. 124-133
As semiconductor technology approaches the atomic scale, electronic systems are increasingly burdened by physical variations and uncertainty. Traditionally-designed systems lack an ability to adapt to these fine-grained effects and are thus becoming more i...
 
Self-Test and Adaptation for Random Variations in Reliability
Found in: International Conference on Field Programmable Logic and Applications
By Kenneth M. Zick, John P. Hayes
Issue Date:September 2010
pp. 193-198
Random physical variations and noise are growing challenges for advanced electronic systems. Field programmable systems can, in principle, adapt to these phenomena, but two main problems must be addressed: how to efficiently characterize random variations ...
 
On-line characterization and reconfiguration for single event upset variations
Found in: On-Line Testing Symposium, IEEE International
By Kenneth M. Zick, John P. Hayes
Issue Date:June 2009
pp. 243-248
The amount of physical variation among electronic components on a die is increasing rapidly. There is a need for a better understanding of variations in transient fault susceptibility, and for methods of on-line adaptation to such variations. We address th...
 
Low-cost sensing with ring oscillator arrays for healthier reconfigurable systems
Found in: ACM Transactions on Reconfigurable Technology and Systems (TRETS)
By John P. Hayes, Kenneth M. Zick
Issue Date:March 2012
pp. 1-26
Electronic systems on a chip increasingly suffer from component variation, voltage noise, thermal hotspots, and other subtle physical phenomena. Systems with reconfigurability have unique opportunities for adapting to such effects. Required, however, are l...
     
On-line sensing for healthier FPGA systems
Found in: Proceedings of the 18th annual ACM/SIGDA international symposium on Field programmable gate arrays (FPGA '10)
By John P. Hayes, Kenneth M. Zick
Issue Date:February 2010
pp. 239-248
Electronic systems increasingly suffer from component variation, thermal hotspots, uneven wearout, and other subtle physical phenomena. Systems based on FPGAs have unique opportunities for adapting to such effects. Required, however, is a low-cost, fine-gr...
