ECE 544: Fault-Tolerant Computing

General Education requirement: Natural Science Technology

Techniques for designing and analyzing dependable and fault-tolerant computer-based systems. Topics addressed include: fault, error, and failure cause-and-effect relationships; fault avoidance techniques; fault tolerance techniques, including hardware redundancy, software redundancy, information redundancy, and time redundancy; fault coverage; time-to-failure models and distributions; reliability modeling and evaluation techniques, including fault trees, cut-sets, reliability block diagrams, binary decision diagrams, and Markov models. In addition, availability modeling, safety modeling, and trade-off analysis are presented.
