dc.description.abstractDiversity has been regarded as a desirable property of redundant instances, since it allows circuits to behave differently in front of a given fault. However, while qualitatively diversity is a well-understood concept, usable efficient metrics do not exist to quantify diversity in the context of safety-related systems. In this paper we cover this gap by proposing DIMP, a low-cost diversity metric based on analyzing the paths of the redundant circuits. We relate it to the particular case of automotive microcontrollers implementing lockstep cores and show that it can be successfully used providing relevant information for addressing common cause faults.
