Design of Fault-Tolerant Systems
Dependability concerns are integral parts of engineering design. In the last decades, digital systems have been incorporated into commercial and military flight control systems, forcing the designers to find new ways to improve the dependability of these systems. The term dependability encompasses the concepts of reliability, availability, safety, security, maintainability, testability, etc. The goal of dependable systems in most applications is to prevent the electronics from being the weak point of the system.
The goal of dependable systems in most applications is to prevent the electronics from being the weak point of the system. Implementation of Fault Tolerance Designs through Redundancy is one way to avoid this possibility, improving the dependability parameters of the system.
Aim of the course:
· to get insight in the aspects contributing to the dependability of computer based systems
· to assess and evaluate the dependability attributes of computer based systems
· to learn the basic techniques to make system fault tolerant by using redundancy: hardware, information, time and software redundancy
· case studies on the evaluations of Fault Tolerant Systems.
