Computer Reliability and Testing
Computer reliability and testing activity
at ACSA is based on professor Vladutiu's
research experience in these fields, as
director of IPA Timisoara (Automation Design
Institute). As such, this group's main expertise
fields of are:
A new project will be launched, concerning
the assesment of fault-tolerance dependencies
for the systems with multilevel fault-tolerant
design. This objective is to be achieved
by simulated error-injection in Hardware
Description Language (HDL) environments;
and the experiments will be focused on testing
the fault-tolerant mechanisms in Embryonics.
Quantum circuits are prone to error.
Moreover, there is a high error probability
even for safe recovery and state coding.
In order to achieve a scalable fault tolerant
quantum computation, we must be able to
detect errors in data and ancilla qubit
coding by appropriate testing techniques.
Also, due to the fact that quantm error
correcting techniques are using the principle
of structural redundancy (just like the
Embryonics project); thus, one possible
reliable solution for implementing fault
tolerant methodologies in quantum computing
would be to use some king of reconfigureable
mechanisms for quantum circuits. The second
launched project at ACSA's reliability and
test group will deal with the above mentioned
