Reliable and energy-efficient digital signal processing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper provides an overview of algorithmic noise-tolerance (ANT) for designing reliable and energy-efficient digital signal processing systems. Techniques such as prediction-based, error cancellation-based, and reduced precision redundancy based ANT are discussed. Average energy-savings range from 67% to 71% over conventional systems. Fluid IP core generators are proposed as a means of encapsulating the benefits of an ANT-based low-power design methodology. CAD issues resident in such a methodology are also discussed.
