The progression of implementation technologies into the sub-100 nanometer lithographies renew the importance of understanding and protecting against single-event upsets in digital systems. In this work, the effects of transient faults on high performance microprocessors is explored. To perform a thorough exploration, a highly detailed register transfer(More)
This paper presents a hardware-based dynamic optimizer that continuously optimizes an applicationýs instruction stream. In continuous optimization, dataflow optimizations are performed using simple, table-based hardware placed in the rename stage of the processor pipeline. The continuous optimizer reduces dataflow height by performing constant(More)
