Many of the nanometer CMOS challenges are seriously compromising the gains attained with technology scaling, mainly impacting the yield and the circuit reliability. To cope with these problems, new design methodologies are necessary to improve the robustness of the circuits. Given the overheads associated with the traditional fault-tolerant approaches,(More)
Precision Agriculture is a relatively new area of study in Brazil, with its expansion in the mid 90s. In this period, there were government incentives in credit lines for rural producers, making possible the use of new technologies in rural areas for maximizing production and reducing costs. In this sense, this work proposes to apply environmental sensing(More)
Fault-tolerant design approaches have been studied as a possible solution for the expected reduction in the reliability of nanoscale integrated circuits. The increase in functional reliability, obtained with fault-tolerant design techniques, comes at a price, i.e., hardware or temporal redundancy. The resulting overhead can be justified in mission critical(More)
