Reconfigurable many-core processors have many advantages over conventionally designed devices, such as low power consumption and very high flexibility. For an increasing number of safety-critical applications, these processors must have an ultra high dependability. This paper discusses the design and verification of an infrastructural IP, the Dependability(More)
the integration of emerging nondigital CMOS technologies will require radically different test methods, posing a major challenge for designers and test engineers. One such technology is microelectronic fluidic (MEF) arrays, which have rapidly gained importance in many biological, pharmaceutical, and industrial applications. The advantages of these systems,(More)
This article has been accepted for publication in a future issue of this journal, but has not been fully edited. Content may change prior to final publication. Abstract—One of the commonly used multivariate metrics for classifying defective devices from non-defective ones is Mahalanobis distance. This metric faces two major application problems: the absence(More)
— This paper reports two novel algorithms based on time-modulo reconstruction method intended for detection of the parametric faults in analogue-to-digital converters (ADC). In both algorithms, a pulse signal, in its slightly adapted form to allow sufficient time for converter settling, is taken as the test stimulus reliving the burden placed on accuracy(More)
