  • Horst, Robert Whiting (1991)
    This thesis introduces a parallel computer architecture known as task flow. Simple replicated cells contain both memory packets and processing logic. Each memory packet contains a data field, the next instruction, and a ...

  • Thearling, Kurt Henry (1990)
    In the past, research has shown that the use of high-level test knowledge can be used to greatly accelerate the test generation process. The problem was that no techniques were developed to extract this knowledge from a ...

  • Nakano, Jun (2006)
    We show that FGBB should be applied in an architecture-aware manner, following the shapes of architectural modules. The reason is that architectural functionality affects the BB needed through temperature and type of ...

  • Sarangi, Smruti R. (2007)
    Using this model we introduce a novel framework that shows how microarchitecture techniques can mitigate variation-induced errors and even trade them off for power and processor frequency. Several such techniques are ...

  • Chandra, Susheel Jagdish (1989)
    The increasing complexity of logic circuits has made the problem of test generation intractable. In this dissertation we investigate three different techniques to speed up the test generation process. The first approach ...

    Rewriting is a computational process in which one term is derived from another by replacing a subterm with another subterm in accordance with a set of rules. If such a set of rules (rewrite system) has the property that ...

  • Chatterjee, Abhijit (1990)
    The use of regular logic structures has become very important in the recent past due to the complexity of the circuits that are being fabricated and the need to design, test and debug them. The testability of different ...
