Systematic Methods to Evaluate Fault-Tolerant Behavior of Nanoscale Circuits
Abstract:This paper focuses on the investigation of efficient methods to evaluate circuit fault-tolerance. We propose a fault-tolerance evaluation method based on the Belief Propagation (BP) algorithm. Compared with existing approaches, our algorithm is more efficient in terms of memory requirements and CPU time. The algorithm can easily run on multiple CPUs to achieve parallel processing, and thus further reducing memory cost and processing time. The significance of this research is that the proposed algorithm can be used for developing computer-aided nanoscale simulation tools to systemically evaluate circuit fault-tolerant behavior. This knowledge, in turn, can help build more robust nanocircuits.
