Abstract
This paper deals with application-oriented testing methods for FPGA circuits. These methods are useful both for manufacturing testing and the detection of the incorrect behaviour of applications in cases when Single-Event Upset (SEU) phenomena occur. After a brief introduction to the test approaches for the detection of SEU-induced faults in FPGAs, the paper focuses on the problem of testing embedded processor cores, and a new approach to the efficient instruction testing of microprocessor cores is presented.
