The detection of common cause faults is supported with these features:

  • System monitoring
    • Voltage monitoring
    • Temperature monitoring
    • Clock frequency monitoring
  • Error management
    • Error management is handled and implemented within the PPU
    • Errors can be signaled as interrupts and mirrored to the PL
  • Monitoring of activation of common cause failures (CCF) by PPU
    • MBIST
    • SCAN
    • Reset, power control
  • Hang protection
    • Cleanup of outstanding transactions under partial reset
  • Aging errors
    • Large on-chip variation (OCV) margin to account for aging effects
