An Automated Method for Adding Resiliency to Mission-Critical SoC Designs

Sponsored by Synopsys

Adding safety measures to SoC designs in the form of radiation-hardened elements or redundancy is essential in making mission-critical applications in the A&D, cloud, automotive, robotics, medical, and IoT industries more resilient against random hardware failures that occur. This paper discusses the automated process of implementing the safety mechanisms/measures (SM) in the design to make them more resilient and analyze their effectiveness from design inception to the final product.
