Research activity concerning radiation effects on SRAM based FPGA.

The research activity is performed in collaboration with the COSYSpace (COmputing SYstem for SPACE) Group of the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics.

FLIPPER, the fault injection tool, allows to emulate the occurence of radiation induced Single Event Upsets (SEUs) inside internal FPGA resurces, namely configuration memory and reconfiguration logic. FLIPPER has been developed in collaboration with the INAF, IASF Milano, under ESA/ESTEC contract 1855/04/NL/LvH/gm.
