Multi-layer software reliability for unreliable hardware


This paper presents a multi-layer software reliability approach that leverages multiple software layers (e. g., programming language, compiler, and operating system) to improve the overall system reliability considering unreliable or partly-reliable hardware. We present a comprehensive design flow that integrates multiple software layers while accounting for the knowledge from lower hardware layers. We show how multiple software layers synergistically operate to achieve a high degree of reliability.
