  • A Novel Method for Soft Error Mitigation in FPGA Using Modified Matrix Code

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):65 - 68
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (617 KB) | HTML iconHTML Multimedia Media

    Field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are readily affected by transient faults in the presence of radiation and other environmental hazards compared to application specific integrated circuits. Hence, error mitigation and recovery techniques are necessary to protect the FPGA hardware from soft errors arising from transient faults. In this letter, modified matrix code (MMC) is used for multibit er... View full abstract»

    Modern programmable logic controllers (PLCs) are pervasive components in industrial control systems (ICSs) such as supervisory control and data acquisition, designed to control industrial processes autonomously or as part of a distributed system topology. Its success may be explained by its robustness and reliability, being one of the most enduring legacies on modern ICS, despite having evolved ve... View full abstract»

    Software bugs are a critical threat to the deployability and maintainability of low-power wireless sensors, resulting in excess power consumption, hardware misconfigurations, incorrect data, and shortened device lifetimes. Worse, these errors can prevent wireless reprogramming, resulting in longer delays and costly human interventions. This letter describes shoulder angel-an ultra-low-power, low-c...

    Recent research has emphasized the benefits of adaptively regulating the sampling rate of a plant as a function of its state of operation. In this letter, we study the problem in the context of the wide variety of low power embedded systems, where sampling rate has a direct relationship with power consumption. We propose a methodology for designing multirate controllers that switch between samplin... View full abstract»

    The IEEE 1666-2011 standard defines SystemC based on traditional discrete event simulation (DES) and sequential co-routine semantics, despite explicit parallelism in the model and ample parallel processor cores available in today's host computers. In order to evolve the SystemC standard toward faster parallel DES, substantial hurdles must be overcome. This letter identifies seven obstacles in the ... View full abstract»

    This letter describes our source-level debugger for Arduino which can be used to debug the code in Arduino using GNU debugger. The presented solution uses Eclipse as the visual front-end. It does not require any modification of the Arduino board or additional hardware; debug functionality is achieved by adding a program library to the user application. Standard functionality expected from a debugg... View full abstract»

  • Partitioning Real-Time Tasks With Replications on Multiprocessor Embedded Systems

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):89 - 92
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (381 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Executing computing tasks with replications is an essential choice to achieve fault-tolerance in designing real-time, embedded systems. A problem of maximizing the number of real-time tasks with replications running on a multiprocessor embedded system is discussed in this letter. The partitioning problem can be modeled as a variant of the bin-packing problem. In the original problem, it is known t... View full abstract»
