Statistical Fault Injection

Abstract

A method for statistical fault injection (SFI) into arbitrary latches within a full system hardware-emulated model is validated against particle-beam-accelerated SER testing for a modern microprocessor. As performed on the IBM POWER6 microprocessor, SFI is capable of distinguishing between error handling states associated with the injected bit flip. Methodologies to perform random and targeted fault injection are presented.
