Alternative Title

Cost driven optimization of repair strategies for tolerating defective crosspoints in NanoFabric


Shanrui Zhang


"With the recent development of nanoscale materials and assembly techniques, it is envisioned to build high-density computational systems in nanometer scale which have many advantages, such as area, power and speed, over current CMOS-based circuits and systems. High-density systems consisting of nanometer-scale elements are likely to have many imperfections; thus, defect-tolerance is considered as one of the most significant challenges. In this thesis. we evaluate a few repair algorithms for tolerating defective crosspoints in NanoFabric and estimate efficiency and cost-effectiveness of each algorithm. Also, for a given design and manufacturing environment, we propose a method to obtain the optimal solution by considering the area overhead, repair time overhead and reconfiguration cost"--Abstract, leaf iii.
