dependency checking logic
|Issue Date:||2010||Publisher:||Springer-Verlag Berlin||Source:||23rd International Conference on Architecture of Computing Systems (ARCS 2010) -- FEB 22-25, 2010 -- Leibniz Univ Hannover, Hannover, GERMANY||Series/Report no.:||Lecture Notes in Computer Science||Abstract:||Register renaming is a widely used technique to remove false data dependencies in superscalar datapaths. Rename logic consists of a table that holds a physical register mapping for each architectural register and a logic for checking intra-group dependencies. This logic checking consists of a number of comparators that compares the values of destination and source registers. Previous research has shown that the full capacity of the dependency checking logic is not used at each cycle. In this paper we propose some techniques that make use of the unused capacity of the dependency checking logic of the rename stage in order to detect soft errors that occur on the register tags while the instructions are passing through the frontend of the processor.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/20.500.11851/6686||ISBN:||978-3-642-11949-1||ISSN:||0302-9743
