Fault Identification in Reconfigurable Carry Lookahead Adders Targeting Nanoelectronic Fabrics
Online repair through reconfiguration is a particularly advantageous approach in the nanoelectronic environment since reconfigurability is naturally supported by the devices. However, precise identification of faulty locations is of critical importance for fine-grain repairs. A CLA is mainly composed of: (1) carry generation blocks and (2) g,p signal generation blocks. In this paper we propose two schemes for fault identification in these two parts correspondingly. For carry generation blocks, an inherently redundant computation path is exploited to identify the faulty block with high precision. As a time redundancy approach, recomputation with rotated operands (RERO) has been utilized in online fault detection for CLA's [13]. For g,p generation blocks, we exploit the RERO scheme to achieve precise fault identification. A comprehensive analysis is provided for the aliasing in the proposed fault identification approach. It is shown that both the amount of repair hardware overhead ...
