    Soft Errors - Hard Facts
    Published. July 17, 2018

    I am long overdue to include a blog on the functional safety requirements for software and indeed the functional safety requirements for Verilog code however this isn’t that blog. By soft errors I mean bit flips in RAM or FF that are not caused by hard errors and therefore disappear when the power is cycled. Previously soft errors were largely ignored and reliability predictions concentrated on hard errors but when IEC 61508-2:2010 mentioned soft errors they could no longer be ignored. This...

    EEPROM Wear Leveling
    Published. July 5, 2017

    A problem that occurs from time to time is the need for an embedded system to keep track of the number of doodads it has processed since it was put in to service. Clearly you can’t keep this value in RAM as it will be lost when power is removed. Thus the obvious solution is […]...
