Through-Silicon-Via (TSV) is one of the most promising technologies to realize 3D Integrated Circuits (3D-ICs). However, the reliability issues due to the low yield rates and the sensitivity to thermal hotspots and stress issues are preventing TSV-based 3D-ICs from being widely and efficiently used. To enhance the reliability of TSV connections, using error correction code to detect and correct faults automatically has been demonstrated as a viable solution. This paper presents a 2D Parity Product Code (2D-PPC) for TSV fault-tolerance with the ability to correct one fault and detect, at least, two faults. In an implementation of 64-bit data and 81-bit code-word, 2D-PPC can detect over 71 faults, on average. Its encoder and decoder decrease the overall latency by 38.33\% when compared to the Single Error Correction Double Error Detection code. In addition to the high detection rates, the encoder can detect 100\% of its gate failures, and the decoder can detect and correct around 40\% of its individual gate failures. The squared 2D-PPC could be extended using orthogonal Latin square to support extra bit correction.
