Using hardware vulnerability factors to enhance AVF analysis
Fault tolerance is now a primary design constraint for all major microprocessors. One step in determining a processor’s compliance to its failure rate target is measuring the Ar...

Applying architectural vulnerability Analysis to hard faults in the microprocessor
In this paper, we present a new metric, Hard-Fault Architectural Vulnerability Factor (H-AVF), to allow designers to more effectively compare alternate hard-fault tolerance scheme...

Characterization of Error-Tolerant Applications when Protecting Control Data
Soft errors have become a significant concern and recent studies have measured the “architectural vulnerability factor” of systems to such errors, or conversely, the potentia...
