Abstract
The continuing decrease in dimensions and operating voltage of transistors has increased their sensitivity against radiation phenomena making soft errors an important challenge in future chip multiprocessors (CMPs). Hence, new techniques for detecting errors in the logic and memories that allow meeting the desired failures-in-time (FIT) budget in CMPs are required. This work proposes a low-cost dynamic particle strike detection mechanism through acoustic wave detectors. Our results show that ou...
