VLSI PROJECTS ABSTRACT 2016 -2017A LOW-COST RADIATION-HARDENED METHOD FOR PIPELINE PROTECTION IN MICROPROCESSORSABSTRACT: The aggressive scaling of semiconductor technology has significantly increased the radiation-induced soft-error rate in modern microprocessors. Meanwhile, due to the increasing complexity of modern processor pipelines and the limited error-tolerance capabilities that previous radiation hardening techniques can provide, the existing pipeline protection mechanisms cannot achieve complete protection. This paper proposes a complete and cost-effective pipeline protection mechanism using a self-checking architecture. The radiation-hardened pipeline is achieved by incorporating soft-error- and timing-error-tolerant flip-flop (SETTOFF)-based self-checking cells into the sequential cells of the pipeline. A replay recovery mechanism is also developed at the architectural level to recover the detected errors. The proposed pipeline protection technique is implemented in an Open RISC microprocessor in a 65-nm technology. A gate-level transient fault-injection and analysis technique is used to evaluate the error-tolerance capability of the proposed hardened pipeline design. The results show that compared with the techniques such as triple modular redundancy, the SETTOFF-based self-checking technique requires over 30% less area and 80% less power overheads. Meanwhile, the error-tolerant and self-checking capabilities of the register allow the proposed pipeline protection technique to provide a noticeably higher level of reliability for different parts of the pipeline compared with the previous pipeline protection techniques.
