Executive Summary

Recent papers suggest that future microprocessors need low-cost fault-tolerance solutions for reliable operation. Several competing software-implemented error-detection methods have been shown to increase the overall resiliency when applied to critical spots in the system. Fault Injection (FI) is a common approach to assess a system's vulnerability to hardware faults. In an FI campaign comprising multiple runs of an application benchmark, each run simulates the impact of a fault in a specific hardware location at a specific point in time.
