As CMOS technology continues to scale down, reliability has become one of the most crucial issues in network-on-chip (NoC). A novel NoC monitoring circuit based on fault thresholds is proposed. This circuit is able to distinguish not only transient faults but also non-transient faults in NoC data links and routers with low area and power overhead.
