In this paper, we present performance analysis of algorithmic noise-tolerance (ANT) techniques. First, we analyze the predictor and RPR based ANT schemes. Next, we present a hybrid ANT scheme which is resilient to burst errors usually occurring in a high soft-error rate (Per) region. For a frequency selective FIR filtering, it is shown that simulation results match well with the analytic bounds while providing about 40 dB improvement in the mean square error over a conventional DSP system at a Per = 10-4. It is also shown that the proposed hybrid ANT scheme maintains its robustness in noise mitigation even in the high soft-error rate region of upto Per = 10-2.
