Abstract

To date, optically reconfigurable gate arrays (ORGAs) have been developed to realize highly dependable embedded systems. ORGAs present many beneficial capabilities beyond those of field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs): The most important is that an ORGA can be reconfigured using an error-included configuration context that has been damaged by high-energy charged particles. The radiation tolerance of an ORGA is extremely high. Moreover, if an inversion/ non-inversion implementation architecture is introduced to an ORGA, the configuration dependability of the ORGA for radiation can be increased drastically. This paper therefore presents a demonstration of the enhanced radiation tolerance of an optically reconfigurable gate array achieved by exploiting the inversion/ non-inversion implementation.
