BASTION, Board and SoC Test Instrumentation for Ageing and No Failure Found, 2014-01-01 - 2016-12-31
Today, an average family spends annually over 50 Euros on No-Failure-Found (NFF) investigations - a known problem of an unknown origin. Tomorrow, the electronic engine control system in a car will be dying after two-three years of operation due to CMOS ageing. Actions are urgently needed!A group of European experts will unite their forces in BASTION to fight against ageing and NFF issues. The project will investigate currently unknown defects, uncertain fault coverage and unclassified field returns. A new defect universe will be assembled and faults will be classified into comprehensive classes. BASTION will study the mechanisms of ageing and improve the longevity of electronic products. Embedded instrumentation and the IEEE P1687 standard will be applied to develop an ultra-low-latency, scalable error detection and localization infrastructure as well as to integrate all heterogeneous technologies into a homogeneous system.The project will complete in three years, at only a negligible fraction of costs wasted by society on NFF annually.

Error Tolerant Computer Systems, 2014-01-01 - 2014-12-31
LTH School of Engineering (Campus Helsingborg) students are, through BASTION, given opportunities to collaborate with foreign companies and universities. The project is also investigating whether there are regional companies interested in Bastions research.
