Radiation-induced multiple event transients (METs) are expected to become more frequent than single event transients (SETs) at nanoscale CMOS technology nodes. In this paper, a fast and accurate layout-based soft error rate (SER) assessment technique with consideration of both SET and MET fault models is presented. Despite existing techniques in which the(More)
Near Threshold Computing (NTC) is a promising approach to reduce the power consumption of modern VLSI designs. However, NTC designs suffer from functional failures and performance loss. Understanding the characteristics of the functional failures and variability effects is of decisive importance in order to mitigate them, and get the most out of NTC. This(More)
With technology scaling, conventional CMOS-based flip-flops can no longer efficiently cope with the increasing leakage power challenge. Therefore, various non-volatile flip-flop designs were recently introduced to reduce the static power consumption. However, these flipflop architectures employ non-volatile Magnetic Tunnel Junction (MTJ) storing devices(More)
Spin Transfer Torque Magnetic Random Access Memory (STT-MRAM) is a promising candidate to replace CMOS based on-chip memories due to its advantages such as non-volatility, high density and scalability.
