Cominlabs RELIASIC: a new circuit sent to foundry

RELIASIC: computation on unreliable architectures

Published 2/4/2019

In the context of the CominLabs RELIASIC project, the IAS team of lab-STICC has just sent to foundry an ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) designed in 28 nm process technology.

 This ASIC contains several versions of the core element of a GPS receiver called Tracking Loop (TL). Each instance of the TL instanciates a different mechanism to mitigate potential errors induced by a rough enviroment (low-voltage supply, very high temperature, clock skew, ionisation, magnetic pulses, ...).

The objective is to evaluate the pros and cons of the different instanciated error mitigation methods in real conditions.
