An optimized implementation of a fault-tolerant clock synchronization circuit A fault-tolerant clock synchronization circuit was designed and tested. A comparison to a previous design and the procedure followed to achieve the current optimization are included. The report also includes a description of the system and the results of tests.
In previous work, we explored the interaction between different formal hardware development techniques in the implementation of a fault-tolerant clock synchronization circuit.
This case study. Fault-Tolerant Clock Synchronization In the previous lectures, we assumed that the world is a happy place without any kind of faults. This is not a realistic assumption in large-scale systems, and it is an issue in high reliability systems as well.
After all, if the system clock fails, there may be no further computations at all. Fault-tolerant clock synchronization in CAN. FAULT-TOLERANT CLOCK SYNCHRONIZATION Joseph Y.

It is intended for internal clock synchronization of systems using a broadcast bus with Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) communication, or other systems where clock readings are broadcast at regular intervals.
In this paper, a new "Sliding Window" clock synchronization algorithm is presented. It offers two significant advantages. First, it can tolerate considerably higher percentages of faults than any known algorithm. In addition, it achieves clock synchronization tightness that is tighter than or as tight as that of other algorithms.
The clock synchronization algorithm by Srikanth and Toueg  guarantees a bound of O(D) on the clock skew between any two nodes at all times and is thus asymptotically optimal. The algorithm is further fault-tolerant and achieves an accuracy with respect. – A clock is derived from another clock signals (e.g., different clock rate or phase) – Relationship is known – Logic for the derived clock should be separated from regular logic and manually synthesized (e.g., special delay line or PLL) – A system with derived clock can still be treated and analyzed as a synchronous system.
FAULT-TOLERANT CLOCK SYNCHRONIZATION • At the beginning of an iteration, all nodes transition to state ready (or, initially, start) within a bounded time span. This resets the ﬂags. • Nodes wait in this state until they are sure that all correct nodes reached it. Then, when a local timeout expires, they transition to propose.
Clock synchronization schemes in the presence of faults have been investigated extensively in recent years to increase reliability in real-time systems. Among the clock synchronization schemes, hardware-based clock synchronization scheme is preferable one for the time-critical applications that need tight and reliable clock synchronization.
Abstract: Existing fault-tolerant clock synchronization algorithms are compared and contrasted. These include the following: software synchronization algorithms, such as convergence-averaging, convergence-nonaveraging, and consistency algorithms, as well as probabilistic synchronization; hardware synchronization algorithms; and hybrid synchronization.
A clock-fault tolerant architecture and circuit for reliable nanoelectronics system Abstract: Due to discrepancies in manufacturing process and the probabilistic nature of quantum mechanical phenomenon, nanoelectronic devices cannot be made as reliable as current microelectronic devices.

Each process has its own read-only physical clock whose drift. remote clock reading error, p is the maximum drift rate of a correct hardware clock and rman is the max- imum duration of a synchronization round.
1 Introduction Tight internal clock synchronization is essential for many real-time and fault-tolerant applications. Inter- nal clock synchronization requires that (1) at any time. Many safety-relevant real-time systems require a reliable time source, which leads to the requirement of fault-tolerant clock synchronization.

A short history on the development of fault-tolerant. The design of clock synchronization has several challenges. Clock synchronization must take two factors, the network transmission delays and clock drift, into account.
First, because the network transmission delay is variable, a processor cannot achieve values of remote clocks immediately.

We present a novel approach for the on-chip generation of a fault-tolerant clock. Our method is based on the hardware implementation of a tick synchronization algorithm from the distributed systems community. We discuss the selection of an appropriate algorithm, present the refinement steps necessary to facilitate its efficient mapping to hardware, and elaborate on the key challenges we had to.
clock synchronization algorithm. Unfortunately, some of its features also make the implementation of a fault-tolerant clock synchronization service a non-trivial task.
Our algo-rithm addresses both the positive and the negative aspects of CAN. Introduction. systems need a fault-tolerant, clock synchronization service.
A clock synchronization service ensures that spatially dispersed processors in a distributed system share a common notion of time. This clock synchronization service must deal with communication delay uncertainties, clock imprecision and drift, as well as link and processor faults.
