This paper presents a simulation-based fault injection analysis of a MIPS-based dual-core processor. In order to fulfill the requirement of this analysis, 114 different fault targets are used in various points of main components which are described in VHDL language; each experiment was repeated 50 times, resulting in 5700 transient faults in this simulation model. The experimental results demonstrate that, depending on the fault injection targets and the benchmark characteristics, fault effects… CONTINUE READING
