The scaling down of semiconductor technology in FPGA increases the soft errors due to radiation effects in space. To address this technological challenge a novel coding technique, Counter Matrix Code (CMC) is proposed to protect the SRAM based FPGA’s configuration memories (FCM) against radiation induced Multiple Bit Upsets (MBU) with Low cost and maximum correction capability.The proposed CMC is experimentally studied for its efficiency and reliability.
