  abstract = {Fault tolerance is becoming an increasingly important
     issue, especially in mission-critical applications where data
     integrity is a paramount concern. Performance, however, remains a
     large driving force in the market place. Runtime reconfigurable
     hardware architectures have the power to balance fault tolerance
     with performance, allowing the amount of fault tolerance to be
     tuned at run-time. This paper describes a new built-in self-test
     designed to run on, and take advantage of, runtime reconfigurable
     architectures using the PipeRench architecture as a model. In
     addition, this paper introduces a new metric by which a user can
     set the desired fault tolerance of a runtime reconfigurable
     device},
