Error Correction Code in SoC FPGA-Based Memory Systems

April 11, 2012 // By Hans Spanjaart, Matthew Prather, Altera
Gone are the early days of embedded design when a few kilobytes of static RAM was all that was needed. Today's applications reap the benefits of integration and functionality, but leave challenges once reserved for high-performance computing such as soft errors. As the memory in embedded systems grows, you will need to pay more attention to soft errors. Discover why mitigating soft errors through error correction code (ECC) can improve your embedded designs. Understand the potential sources and implications of soft errors and learn how Altera designed its SoC FPGA products to greatly improve resilience of systems against soft errors.
