SRAM based logic devices such as FPGAs have some susceptibility to SEU and functional interruption. This paper describes several reliable mitigation techniques for the Virtex series FPGA architecture, which will retain functional integrity while static upsets are detected and corrected. Additionally, this paper demonstrates how an SEU in an FPGA can be(More)
Orbital remote sensing instruments and systems can benefit from high performance, adaptable components. Field programmable SRAM-based gate arrays (FPGAs) are usually the chosen platform for real-time reconfigurable computing. This technology is driven by the commercial sector, so devices intended for the space environment must be adapted from commercial(More)

A comprehensive Single Event Effects (SEE) characterization of advanced commercial technologies was conducted using the heavy-ion test facility at Texas A&M. The components evaluated included a 322,000 gate Virtex reprogrammable FPGA (XQVR300) from Xilinx, and several manufacturers versions of 4Meg Zero Burst Turnaround (ZBT ) SRAMs. The SRAMs all(More)
Phytophthora cinnamomi, the causal agent of Phytophthora Root Rot (PRR) of avocado, is the most serious disease of avocado worldwide. The development of tolerant rootstocks to control PRR has proven to be an effective means to control the disease. However, using traditional breeding approaches can take over a decade to produce results and there has been a(More)
Phage display is the most widely used method for selecting binding molecules from recombinant antibody libraries. However, validation of the phage antibodies often requires early production of the cognate full-length immunoglobulin G (IgG). The conversion of phage library outputs to a full immunoglobulin via standard subcloning is time-consuming and limits(More)
