  • Abstract For improving the performance of microprocessor becomes more and more complex with the microprocessor techniques improvement. This improvement leads to verify microprocessor behaviors that becoming more and more difficult. How use the complete microprocessor to verify the developing microprocessor for decreasing time of debugging?
    The fault tolerance which is duplicating same components to detect transient faults and permanent faults at running time is widely used in the automobile or aviation electrons. This fault tolerance concept is used to verify the developing microprocessor with the complete microprocessor which is a golden in the dual core architecture. Both microprocessors are suspended when both data are inconsistent and the fault is occurred near the executing instruction to help debugging. We design two experiments to verify our methodology that can be implemented, one uses the same instruction set architecture with different implementation on two independent processors, the other is that using the same processor but with different cache size and replacement policy. Second, the microprocessor is injected faults in the core, instruction cache and data cache and our methodology can detect the faults normally. Final, the performance degradation of our methodology is 30% with a single core.
