Network-on-Chips are emerging as a new communication infrastructure to supersede the traditional bus structures. Therefore, reliability and fault tolerance are challenges in research. The combination and interaction of techniques on different layers, targeting multiple fault mechanisms, will led to an innovative reliable solution for NoCs.
The thesis aims at setting-up an online fault diagnosis and localization, using a peculiar cross-layer fault modeling approach. Appropriate functional fault models should be defined and used for online monitoring of the multi-layer Network-on-Chip.
During this thesis the candidate will learn how to set-up fault models, and gain skill on how to use that during a system design
Required skills Programming Languages: SPICE, VHDL, C
Digital System design methodologies
Notes The thesis will be developed within the framework of a joint research project between the Testgroup of Politecnico di Torino and the Inst. für Technische Informatik, Universität Stuttgart (Germany), prof. Hans-joachim Wunderlich.
