POWER-MODES: POWer-EmulatoR- and MOdel-Based DEpendability and Security Evaluations
Armin Krieg, Johannes Grinschgl, Christian Steger, Reinhold Weiss, Holger Bock, Josef Haid
Article No.: 19
DOI: 10.1145/2392616.2392617

Innovation cycles have been shortening significantly during the last years. This process puts tremendous pressure on designers of embedded systems for security-or reliability-critical applications. Eventual design problems not detected during...

Adaptive Voltage Scaling in a Dynamically Reconfigurable FPGA-Based Platform
Atukem Nabina, Jose Luis Nunez-Yanez
Article No.: 20
DOI: 10.1145/2392616.2392618

Power is an important issue limiting the applicability of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) since it is considered to be up to one order of magnitude higher than in ASICs. Recently, dynamic reconfiguration in FPGAs has emerged as a viable...

Reconfigurable Fault Tolerance: A Comprehensive Framework for Reliable and Adaptive FPGA-Based Space Computing
Adam Jacobs, Grzegorz Cieslewski, Alan D. George, Ann Gordon-Ross, Herman Lam
Article No.: 21
DOI: 10.1145/2392616.2392619

Commercial SRAM-based, field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have the potential to provide space applications with the necessary performance to meet next-generation mission requirements. However, mitigating an FPGA’s susceptibility to...

On the Evolution of Hardware Circuits via Reconfigurable Architectures
Fabio Cancare, Davide B. Bartolini, Matteo Carminati, Donatella Sciuto, Marco D. Santambrogio
Article No.: 22
DOI: 10.1145/2392616.2392620

Traditionally, hardware circuits are realized according to techniques that follow the classical phases of design and testing. A completely new approach in the creation of hardware circuits has been proposed---the Evolvable Hardware (EHW) paradigm,...
