Defect and Fault Tolerance in VLSI and Nanotechnology Systems(VSI: DFTS_2022)

The production of highly reliable and secure electronic devices and systems represents a major technological and research challenge together with the increasing demand for matching high computing performance and low power consumption. Latest projections forecast among others, the introduction of new technologies to support emerging applications such as smart diagnostics and healing in healthcare, autonomous driving in automotive that require high safety and quality standards aiming at 0 defective parts per million manufactured parts. In addition, advanced computer systems built with new paradigms like neuromorphic and quantum computing, on one hand promise to achieve better services and more diversified functionalities on the other hand require new approaches for testing and validation. This special issue targets at novel contributions on the topics of reliability in the design, technology and testing of electronic devices and systems, integrated circuit, printed modules, as well as methodologies and tools used for reliability prediction, verification and design validation.

Special issue information:

The design, implementation and production of highly reliable and secure electronic devices and systems represents a major technological and research challenge together with the increasing demand for matching high computing performance and low power consumption. Latest projections forecast among others, the introduction of new technologies to support emerging applications such as smart diagnostics and healing in healthcare, autonomous driving in automotive that require high safety and quality standards aiming at 0 defective parts per million manufactured parts. In addition, advanced computer systems built with new paradigms like neuromorphic and quantum computing, on one hand promise to achieve better services and more diversified functionalities on the other hand require new approaches for testing and validation. This special issue targets at novel contributions in the field of defect and fault tolerance in VLSI and nanotechnology systems inclusive of emerging technologies. All aspects of design, manufacturing, test, reliability, security and availability that are affected by defects during manufacturing and by faults during system operation are of interest.

Authors are invited to submit a manuscript to the special section on Defect and Fault Tolerance in VLSI and Nanotechnology Systems. Relevant topics of interest to this special section include (but are not limited to) reliability and dependability-aware analysis and design methodologies:

​- Yield Analysis and Modeling: Defect/fault analysis and models; statistical yield modeling; diagnosis; critical area and other metrics.
- Testing Techniques: Built-in self-test; delay fault modeling and diagnosis; testing for analog and mixed circuits; online testing; signal and clock integrity.
