Space and avionics systems always require high dependable components, which guarantee correct operations in safety-critical environments, characterized by radiations particles. Modern FPGAs have been designed with advanced integrated circuit techniques that allow high speed and low power performance, joined to reconfiguration capabilities. This makes new FPGA devices very advantageous for space and avionics computing. However, larger levels of integration makes FPGA's configuration memory more prone to suffer Multi-Cell Upset errors (MCUs), caused by a single radiation particle that can flip the content of multiple nearby cells.
