A transputer-based accelerator for digital circuits fault simulation

Fault simulating digital devices requires powerful tools able to deal with their increased size and complexity. Software simulators are often unable to satisfy the needs of designers and test engineers due to the size of the simulated circuits, and to the large number of faults; hardware accelerators have been proposed to solve the problem. We present a system running on a net of transputers which uses a fault-partitioning strategy to fully exploit the available processors. The results show that this solution can represent a good trade-off between the cost of the system and the obtained speed-up.
