The incorporation of different forms of redundancy has been recently proposed for various VLSI and WSI designs. These include regular architectures, built by interconnecting a large number of a few types of system elements on a single chip or wafer. The motivation for introducing fault-tolerance (redundancy) into these architectures is two-fold: yield enhancement and performance (like computational availability) improvement.
