FT-UNSHADES is a version of the UNSHADES concept dedicated to study Fault Tolerant Circuits and themeasurement of the robustness of a netlist against soft errors. It's based on the propietary method for inserting controlled modifications into the current state of the emulator device (VirtexII, XC2V4000, XC2V6000, xC2V8000) during execution time. Using this board and software, fault tolerance detailed analysis can be produced before IC fabrication
