Soft Error Modeling and Analysis for Microprocessors

  title={Soft Error Modeling and Analysis for Microprocessors},
  author={Xiaodong Li and Li Xiaodong},
Soft errors are a growing concern for processor reliability. Recent work has motivated architecture level studies of soft errors since the architecture level can mask many raw errors and architectural solutions can exploit workload knowledge. My dissertation focuses on the modeling and analysis of soft error issues at the architecture level. We start with the widely used method for estimating the architecture level mean time to failure (MTTF) due to soft errors. The method first calculates the… CONTINUE READING
