  1. 1. Scheduling and Optimization of Fault-Tolerant Embedded Systems

    University dissertation from Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Viacheslav Izosimov; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Embedded systems; Real-Time systems; Design optimization; Fault tolerance; Transient faults; Soft errors; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Informatics; computer and systems science Computer and systems science; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Informatik; data- och systemvetenskap Data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : Safety-critical applications have to function correctly even in presence of faults. This thesis deals with techniques for tolerating effects of transient and intermittent faults. Reexecution, software replication, and rollback recovery with checkpointing are used to provide the required level of fault tolerance. READ MORE

  2. 2. On Fault Injection-Based Assessment of Safety-Critical Systems

    University dissertation from Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Daniel Skarin; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Transient Faults; Fault Injection; Error Detection and Recovery; Fault Tolerance; Embedded Control Systems;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with techniques for designing and evaluating error detection and recovery mechanisms for computer systems. For the assessment of such systems, we describe a comprehensive fault injection tool that is capable of emulating the effects of hardware errors in microprocessors. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modeling, Control and Protection of Low-Voltage DC Microgrids

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Daniel Salomonsson; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; circuit transient analysis; dc power systems; dispersed storage and generation; load modeling; power conversion; power distribution control; power distribution faults; power distribution protection; power electronics; TECHNOLOGY Electrical engineering; electronics and photonics Electric power engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Elektroteknik; elektronik och fotonik Elkraftteknik;

    Abstract : Current trends in electric power consumption indicate an increasing use of dc in end-user equipment, such as computers and other electronic appliances used in households and offices. With a dc power system, ac/dc conversion within these loads can be avoided, and losses reduced. READ MORE

  4. 4. Measuring the Impact of Hardware Errors in Computer Systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Behrooz Sangchoolie; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sources of Variation; Fault Injection; Dependability Assessment; Microprocessor Faults; Hardware Error Sensitivity;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses the problem of measuring hardware error sensitivity of computer systems. Hardware error sensitivity is the probability that a hardware error will result in an erroneous output. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sources of Variations in Error Sensitivity of Computer Systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Fatemeh Ayatolahi; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; compiler optimization; fault tolerance; transient fault; fault injection; error sensitivity; bit flipping;

    Abstract : Technology scaling is reducing the reliability of integrated circuits. This makes it important to provide computers with mechanisms that can detect and correct hardware errors. This thesis deals with the problem of assessing the hardware error sensitivity of computer systems. READ MORE
