Editorial to special issue on reliable computing
Sally A. McKee
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/1265949.1265950

The spin-wave nanoscale reconfigurable mesh and the labeling problem
Mary M. Eshaghian-Wilner, Alex Khitun, Shiva Navab, Kang L. Wang
Article No.: 5
DOI: 10.1145/1265949.1265951

In this article, we present a nanoscale reconfigurable mesh which is interconnected by ferromagnetic spin-wave buses. In this architecture, unlike the traditional spin-based nano structures which transmit charge, waves are transmitted. As a...

Design for dependability in emerging technologies
Lucian Prodan, Mihai Udrescu, Oana Boncalo, Mircea Vladutiu
Article No.: 6
DOI: 10.1145/1265949.1265952

As current microelectronics will reach their physical limits within the foreseeable future, emerging technologies may offer a solution for maintaining the trends to increase computing performance. Biologically-inspired and quantum computing...

Evolving dependability
Andy M. Tyrrell, Andrew J. Greensted
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/1265949.1265953

Evolvable hardware offers much for the future of complex systems design. Evolutionary techniques not only have the potential for larger solution space coverage, but when implemented on hardware, also allow system designs to adapt to changes in the...

Evolutionary functional recovery in virtual reconfigurable circuits
Lukáš Sekanina
Article No.: 8
DOI: 10.1145/1265949.1265954

A virtual reconfigurable circuit (VRC) is a domain-specific reconfigurable device developed using an ordinary FPGA in order to easily implement evolvable hardware applications. While a fast partial runtime reconfiguration and application-specific...

Self-replicating hardware for reliability: The embryonics project
Gianluca Tempesti, Daniel Mange, Pierre-Andre Mudry, Joël Rossier, Andre Stauffer
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/1265949.1265955

The multicellular structure of biological organisms and the interpretation in each of their cells of a chemical program (the DNA string or genome) is the source of inspiration for the Embryonics (embryonic electronics) project, whose final...

A self-organizing defect tolerant SIMD architecture
Jaidev Patwardhan, Chris Dwyer, Alvin R. Lebeck
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/1265949.1265956

The continual decrease in transistor size (through either scaled CMOS or emerging nanotechnologies) promises to usher in an era of tera to peta-scale integration but with increasing defects. Regardless of fabrication methodology (top-down or...
