This paper describes the design of a power efficient microarchitecture for transient fault detection in chip multiprocessors (CMPs) We introduce a new per-core dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) algorithm for our architecture that significantly reduces power dissipation for redundant execution with a minimal performance overhead. Using cycle accurate simulation combined with a simple first order power model, we estimate that our architecture reduces dynamic power dissipation in the redundant core by an mean value of 79% and a maximum of 85% with an associated mean performance overhead of only 1:2%
