Device scaling trends dramatically increase the susceptibility of microprocessors to soft errors. Further, mounting demand for embedded microprocessors in a wide array of safety critical applications, ranging from automobiles to pacemakers, compounds the importance of addressing the soft error problem. Historically, soft error tolerance techniques have been targeted mainly at high-end server markets, leading to solutions such as coarse-grained modular redundancy and redundant multithreading… CONTINUE READING
