A Safe, Accurate Intravenous Infusion Control System
September/October 1998 (vol. 18 no. 5)
pp. 12-21
The main goal of this work is the development of a fault-tolerant intravenous infusion control system. The system was implemented in hardware and software and the hardware/software partitioning was done by using a co-design methodology developed in our research group. The main criteria considered during the hardware/software partitioning were performance, hardware area and software fault-tolerance. The software was implemented into a microprocessor and the hardware was prototyped by using FPGA's.
Index Terms:
Fault tolerance, FPGAs, control systems, hardware-software codesign
