This chapter presents a broad range of techniques for highly reliable and survivable field programmable gate array-based embedded computing systems operating in harsh environments. The notion of autonomous self-repair is essential for such systems as physical access to such platforms is often limited. In this regard, adaptable reconfiguration-based techniques are presented in this chapter, whereby an appropriate set of resources can be selected at runtime to achieve graceful performance degradation in the presence of multiple permanent and transient faults. Intermittent quality ...
