This work analyzes the behavior of a designed embedded system composed of microprocessor, memories and SpaceWire (SpW) links under Total Ionizing Dose (TID) synthesized into a commercial flash-based FPGA from Actel. Two tests were performed: one the FPGA is configured just once at the beginning of the irradiation and the other the FPGA is reconfigured every 5 krad (Si). Results evaluate power supply current (Icc), temperature, function operation and performance degradation.
