Abstract

The goal of this project, sponsored by General Dynamics, is to create an FPGA-based system capable of detecting and gracefully recovering from errors without compromising system functionality. Previous research developed a prototype for partial reconfiguration, but a major limitation was the need for a PC to partially reprogram the FPGA. By implementing a method of self-reconfiguration and developing a system using triple module redundancy, the FPGA can locate errors and partially self-reconfigure the corrupted areas while maintaining valid system outputs.
