Embedding smart and runtime techniques to improve multi-core systems’ reliability

Multi-core processors are embedded in several systems, including mobile devices, cars and supercomputers. While employing COTS processors enhances system performance and decreases design cost, the unreliability of such components allied to the increasing chip power densities and the continuous technology shrink is making multi-core systems more susceptible to soft errors.

Soft errors induced by the exposition of such systems to radiations and noise fluctuations may cause critical failures on underlying system behaviour, which can lead to financial or human life losses. The aim of my research is to investigate novel runtime techniques and tools to improve the whole system reliability.
