Reconfigurable Field Programmable Gate Arrays for Mission-Critical Applications

By Niccolò Battezzati, Luca Sterpone, Massimo Violante

Embedded platforms purposes which are both challenge or safety-critical frequently entail low- to mid- construction volumes, require the fast improvement of particular initiatives, that are mostly computing in depth, and are expense bounded. The adoption of re-configurable FPGAs in such program domain names is restricted to the supply of compatible concepts to assure the dependability necessities entailed by means of serious functions. This e-book describes the demanding situations confronted via designers whilst enforcing a project- or safety-critical program utilizing re-configurable FPGAs and it information a variety of options to beat those demanding situations. as well as an summary of the major strategies of re-configurable FPGAs, it presents a theoretical description of the failure modes which may reason wrong operation of re-configurable FPGA-based digital platforms. It additionally outlines research innovations that may be used to forecast such disasters and covers the speculation in the back of strategies to mitigate fault results. This publication additionally experiences present applied sciences to be had for development re-configurable FPGAs, particularly SRAM-based expertise and Flash-based expertise. for every expertise brought, theoretical options awarded are utilized to genuine situations. layout strategies and instruments are awarded to enhance serious purposes utilizing advertisement, off-the-shelf units, comparable to Xilinx Virtex FPGAs, and Actel ProASIC FPGAs. replacement concepts according to radiation hardened FPGAs, corresponding to Xilinx SIRF and Atmel ATF280 also are awarded. This publication is a useful reference for someone attracted to knowing the applied sciences of re-configurable FPGAs, in addition to designers constructing serious purposes in keeping with those applied sciences.
