Technology scaling makes transistors more susceptible to transient faults. As a result, it is becoming increasingly important to incorporate transient fault tolerance in future processors. Traditional transient fault tolerance approaches duplicate in time or space for robust fault tolerance, but are expensive in terms of performance, area, and power, counteracting the very benefits of technology scaling. To make fault tolerance viable for commodity processors, unconventional techniques are… CONTINUE READING
