  • Deadlock Essay

    Processes and Threads In 1965, a man by the name of Gordon Moore who was the cofounder of Intel noticed that the number of transistors per square inch had nearly doubled every year since the integrated circuit was invented. He predicted that this would be the case for years to come. But the pace has slowed down with the limitations of massive transistors in a small space emitting so much heat and with the speed limit of the electron, being the speed of light that his prediction has been limited…

  • What Is Fault Tolerant Computing?

    is employed to mask or otherwise work around these faults, in this manner preserving a certain desired level of functionality. Generally, redundancy is defined as the deployment of spare resources (spatial) for the application. Permanent faults are generally tolerated by hardware redundancy, which is also known as modular redundancy (MR), where cloned tasks are running concurrently on multiple processing units. Broadly, three different techniques are used for implementing temporal redundancy…
