A taxonomy of reconfiguration techniques for fault-tolerant processor arrays

  title={A taxonomy of reconfiguration techniques for fault-tolerant processor arrays},
  author={Mengly Chean and Jos{\'e} A. B. Fortes},
Focuses on the characterization and classification of reconfiguration techniques. The techniques are differentiated according to the type of redundancy (time or hardware), allocation of redundancy (local or global), replacement unit, (processor or a set of processors), switching domain (global or local), and switching implementation (switching element, bus, or network). Typical techniques from four major classes-set switching, processor switching, local redundancy, and time redundancy-are… CONTINUE READING
