1.8. Evaluating a System's Response to Functional Upsets

SEUs can strike any memory element, so you must test the system to ensure a comprehensive recovery response. The Intel® Quartus® Prime software includes the Fault Injection Debugger to aid in SEU recovery. You can use the Fault Injection Debugger graphically with the GUI, or you can use command line assignments.

The Fault Injection Debugger works together with the Fault Injection IP core. To use the debugging feature you must instantiate the Fault Injection IP core in the FPGA design. During debugging, the IP core flips a CRAM bit by dynamically reconfiguring the frame containing the CRAM bit.
