Fault injection is mainly used to test and evaluate the fault-tolerance based designs. In current VLSI technology fault injection has become a popular technique for experimentally verifying the fault tolerant based designs. There are fundamentally two types of fault injection methods; they are hardware-based fault injection and software-based fault injection. Both have their own limitations and advantages. The FPGA synthesizable fault injection model can give reasonable solution with high speed testing platform and also allows good controllability and observability. Even though a considerable progress has been made in research part of the fault injection algorithms, there is a little progress done in developing a tool for FPGA based fault emulation.
