Fault tolerant circuits are currently required in several major application sectors and are going to be mandatory in future domains like autonomous vehicles. CAD tools are required to automate the insertion of fault tolerant mechanisms and validate the reliability properties of the circuit. Fault injection emerged as a widely accepted solution for the qualification plan of a design but with various challenges. In particular, the fault propagation analysis is not enough accurate or involves too much overhead in terms of computation time.

The aim of the thesis is the implementation of a CAD tool for the automatic instrumentation of integrated circuits for an efficient fault propagation analysis after fault injection. The instrumentation modifies the circuit by inserting pieces of hardware to provide external controllability and observability of fault effects. Besides fault propagation analysis, the circuit instrumentation allows performing fault detection and error correction during system operation. The candidate must have experience in the design of embedded systems and knowledge of circuit reliability.
