Path-Based Error Coverage Prediction
Journal article, 2002
We present an analytical technique that uses fault injection data for estimating the coverage of concurrent error detection mechanisms in microprocessors. A major problem in such estimations is that the coverage depends on the program executed by the microprocessor as well as the input sequence to the program. We propose a method that predicts the error coverage for a specified input sequence based on fault injection data obtained for another input sequence. Our results show that post-injection analysis is a promising approach for reducing the cost of coverage estimation.
