The semiconductor industry faces numerous challenges in developing reliable, energy-efficent SoC designs that are on a par with modern communications systems. Researchers must explore the tradeoffs between reliability and energy efficiency at the device, circuit, architectural, algorithmic, and system levels to develop a reliability-energy "knob" that can be synergistically tuned to meet such requirements at each level of the design hierarchy. As such, elegant and practical solutions will require the application of coding and communication-theoretic techniques to the design of SoC components.
