Industry standards including DO-254, IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 define functional safety and error mitigation strategies for the creation and validation of high reliability systems. The Synplify Premier tool automates industry methods for mitigating soft errors such as single-event upsets (SEUs) that are increasingly present in the latest FPGA process geometries. Synplify Premier provides essential strategies to automate SEU immunity and create safe designs that operate with high reliability in radiation-rich environments: In particular, it provides direct support for SEU error detection and recovery schemes for FPGA designs and also offers automated support for the creation of SEU error monitors, enabling software-based error mitigation schemes for controlling, monitoring, recovery and diagnostics of system errors that occurred due to SEUs. Also, it enables the user to validate the implementation of error mitigation strategies by enabling functional tests in hardware by offering dynamic fault injection capabilities.
