The sensor node localization with an acceptable accuracy is a fundamental and important problem for location-aware applications of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Among numerous localization schemes proposed specifically for WSNs, the Received Signal Strength (RSS) based range-free localization techniques have attracted considerable research interest for(More)
Time-Division Multiple-Access (TDMA) is a common MAC paradigm in wireless sensor networks. However, in its traditional form, the TDMA-based protocols suffer from low channel utilization and high message delay because of a long frame length needed to provide collisionfree transmissions, which is particularly damaging in dense wireless sensor networks. In(More)
As technology scales toward deep submicron, the integration of complete system-on-chip (SoC) designs consisting of large number of Intellectual Property (IP) blocks (cores) on the same silicon die is becoming technically feasible. Until recently, the design-space exploration for SoCs has been mainly focused on the computational aspects of the problem.(More)
Hardware redundancy may be used in a variety of manners to achieve fault tolerance. One of the most popular techniques is a triple modular redundancy (TMR) scheme. Such a scheme has also been referred to as masking redundancy because failures those affect only if one of the three modules is masked by the majority of the nonfailed modules. Most of the(More)
Very large scale integration (VLSI) technology has evolved to a level where large systems, previously implemented as printed circuit boards with discrete components, are integrated into a single integrated circuit (IC). But aggressive new chip design technologies frequently adversely affect chip reliability during functional operation. The use of a(More)
Localization in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) refers to the ability of determining the positions of sensor nodes, with an acceptable accuracy, based on known positions of several anchor nodes. Among the plethora of possible localization schemes, the Received Signal Strength (RSS) based range-free localization techniques have attracted significant research(More)
This paper presents a cost-effective, non-intrusive technique of partially self-checking combinational circuits design. The proposed technique is similar to duplication with comparison, wherein duplicated function module and comparator act as a function checker that detects any erroneous response of the original function module. However, instead of(More)
