Session L: Mitigation Methods for Reprogrammable Logic
in the Space Radiation Environment

Ken LaBel, NASA Goddard Space Flight CenterMike Wirthlin, Brigham Young University
Session Chairs:
Ken LaBel, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
Mike Wirthlin, Brigham Young University

Session L will feature a lively discussion about mitigation methods for the application of reprogrammable devices in the space radiation environment.  The trade space of complexity, circuit impacts, verification, overhead in resources such as space and power, etc. versus effectiveness will be examined and discussed.  This workshop, held in both 2003 and 2004, will be continued this year in an expanded format.

Session L will held in the Hemisphere  B room and consist of two segments:
