Simulation of Hamming Coding and Decoding for Microcontroller Radiation Hardening
This paper presents a method of hardening the 8051
micro-controller, able to assure reliable operation in the presence of
bit flips caused by radiation. Aiming at avoiding such faults in the
8051 micro-controller, Hamming code protection was used in its
SRAM memory and registers. A VHDL code has been used for this
hamming code protection.
