How can designers maintain high standards and ensure success for these types of demanding designs? The answers are here. This paper first provides brief definitions of key concepts: mission-critical, safety critical, high-reliability, and high-availability. The paper then considers the various elements associated with the creation of high-reliability and high-availability FPGA designs.
A customer reference story illustrates how using FPGAs in redesign reduces hardware costs by nearly half while increasing overall performance and accelerating the speed of the application.
