SRAM-based FPGAs are becoming increasingly attractive for use in space applications due to their reconfigurability and signal processing capabilities, as well as their increasing speed and capacity. Traditional SRAM-based FPGAs, however, are highly sensitive to the ionizing radiation environment in space, making them prone to radiation-induced memory upsets. In this paper, we evaluate and compare scrubbing techniques for Xilinx SRAM-based FPGAs with respect to radiation-induced single event… CONTINUE READING
