Introduction to special issue on reliability and device degradation in emerging technologies
Rahul Rao, Fadi Gebara
Article No.: 1
DOI: 10.1145/2543749.2543750

Recovery modeling of negative bias temperature instability (NBTI) for SPICE-compatible circuit aging simulators
Haldun Küflüoğlu, Cathy Chancellor, Min Chen, Claude Cirba, Vijay Reddy
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/2517648

A feasible computational framework that enables improved predictability of NBTI degradation within commercially available tools is discussed. The NBTI model is used for real-time circuit operation where recovery is present. The complementary...

Reliability improvement of logic and clock paths in power-efficient designs
Senthil Arasu, Mehrdad Nourani, Vijay Reddy, John M. Carulli Jr., Gautam Kapila, Min Chen
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/2543749.2543751

Performance degradation due to transistor aging is a significant impediment to high-performance IC design due to increasing concerns of reliability mechanisms such as negative-bias-temperature-instability (NBTI). The concern only grows with...

Workload assignment considering NBTI degradation in multicore systems
Jin Sun, Roman Lysecky, Karthik Shankar, Avinash Kodi, Ahmed Louri, Janet Roveda
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/2539124

With continuously shrinking technology, reliability issues such as Negative Bias Temperature Instability (NBTI) has resulted in considerable degradation of device performance, and eventually the short mean-time-to-failure (MTTF) of the whole...

Robust learning approach for neuro-inspired nanoscale crossbar architecture
Djaafar Chabi, Damien Querlioz, Weisheng Zhao, Jacques-Olivier Klein
Article No.: 5
DOI: 10.1145/2539123

Scaling beyond CMOS require a new combination of computing paradigm and new devices. In this context, memristor are often considered as best candidate to implement efficiently synapses in hardware neural networks. In this article, we analyze the...

Nanoarray architectures multilevel simulation
Stefano Frache, Mariagrazia Graziano, Maurizio Zamboni
Article No.: 6
DOI: 10.1145/2541882

Density and regularity are deemed as the major advantages of nanoarray architectures based on nanowires. Literature demonstrated that proper reliability analyzes must be performed and solutions have to be devised to improve nanoarrays yield. Their...

Alberto Avritzer, Tadashi Dohi
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/2543749.2543752

A survey of software aging and rejuvenation studies
Domenico Cotroneo, Roberto Natella, Roberto Pietrantuono, Stefano Russo
Article No.: 8
DOI: 10.1145/2539117

Software aging is a phenomenon plaguing many long-running complex software systems, which exhibit performance degradation or an increasing failure rate. Several strategies based on the proactive rejuvenation of the software state...

Software rejuvenation scheduling using accelerated life testing
Jing Zhao, Yuliang Jin, Kishor S. Trivedi, Rivalino Matias Jr., Yanbin Wang
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/2539118

A number of studies have reported the phenomenon of “Software aging”, caused by resource exhaustion and characterized by progressive software performance degradation. In this article, we carry out an experimental study of software...

Job completion time on a virtualized server with software rejuvenation
Fumio Machida, Victor F. Nicola, Kishor S. Trivedi
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/2539121

This article analyzes the completion time of a job running on a virtualized server subject to software aging and rejuvenation in a virtual machine monitor (VMM). A job running on the server may be interrupted by virtual machine (VM) failure, VMM...
