Abstract: NUMBER OF PAGES: (xliv+1199+x+305 suppl.)In modern SoCs, embedded memories occupy the largest part of the chip area and include an even larger amount of active devices. As memories are designed very tightly to the limits of the technology, they are more prone to failures than logic. Thus, memories concentrate the large majority of defects and affect circuit yield dramatically. Hence, built-in self-repair is gaining importance. This work presents optimal reconfiguration functions for memory built-in self-repair…
