Week 9

During this week I continue with my investigation, this time on redundancy.

I found a publication on the basic understanding on triple modular redundancy for FPGA -based computer systems.

The basic idea is that TMR is when you have three processors working simultaneously, and their outputs have voters. The voters select the most popular output. TM is implemented relative to the architecture structure of the FPGA. The publication explains that the biggest area of the architecture such as the registers for example will require a very strong TMR since it is more vulnerable to radiation effects. This is to avoid overhead and also to avoid to make the system prone to radiation effects.

During this week I continued to work on my final paper, and finished my poster presentation.
