Hardware/Software Implementation of Simulation Modeling in the Tasks of Electronic Equipment Reliability Function Evaluating
The paper presents a solution to the question of increasing authenticity and accuracy in predicting dependability, in particular, the reliability of electronic equipment (EE) by simulation modeling. A review and analysis of existing solutions is carried out and their drawbacks are identified. The description of the developed FPGA based VI-module is given, which allows to assess the EE reliability characteristics with an accuracy of 18 decimal places. Also, the developed VI-module is highly reliable due to the use of a random number generator with a repetition period depending on the type of FPGA up to 2^(64-1) in the form of hardware/software implementation based on FPGA.
