Enhancing robust SEU mitigation with 28-nm FPGAs Design How-To 8/17/2010 Post a comment Systems designed with FPGAs benefit from significant improvements over ASICS, such as
rapid-process technology scaling and design innovation, which permit the use of FPGAs in
high-availability, high-reliability, and safety-critical systems. However, along with
technology scaling come other effects such as increased susceptibility to soft errors that
previously could be ignored. These soft errors, caused by single event upsets (SEUs), are
nondestructive and can be corrected without syst
Blog Doing Math in FPGAs Tom Burke 18 comments For a recent project, I explored doing "real" (that is, non-integer) math on a Spartan 3 FPGA. FPGAs, by their nature, do integer math. That is, there's no floating-point ...
