"With the recent development of nanoscale materials and assembly techniques, it is envisioned to build high-density reconfigurable systems which have never been achieved by the photolithography. Various reconfigurable architectures have been proposed based on nanowire crossbar structure as the primitive building block. Unfortunately, high density systems consisting of nanometer-scale elements are likely to have many imperfections and variations thus, defect-tolerance is considered as one of the most exigent challenges. Thus the defects should be located when tested and the logic has to be rerouted around them to maintain proper functionality. The thesis is organized into three papers, as described below
The first two papers evaluate three different logic mapping algorithms with defect avoidance to circumvent clustered defective cross points in nanowire reconfigurable crossbar architectures. The effectiveness of inherited redundancy and configurability utilization is demonstrated through extensive parametric simulations.
The third paper discusses programming asynchronous nano crossbar architecture and demonstrates a method to find an optimal solution to the dimensions of proposed architecture through simulations"--Abstract, page iv.
