The construction of computer systems containing integrated circuit logic components with very large scale integration (VLSI), that is, many thousands of gates, is inevitable. Such levels of integration have already been achieved in memory components. There are significant problems in using some conventional fault-tolerant techniques in VLSI implementations for general purpose computers; consequently, modified approaches must be investigated.
