In the previous chapters we presented the impact of ionizing radiation on FPGA devices; we discussed the possible mitigation techniques looking at both the FPGA manufacturer point of view and the FPGA user point of view; we also presented experimental data about reprogrammable FPGAs available on the market; and we discussed the use of application-level techniques to mitigate ionizing radiation effects on several case studies.
