Safety-critical systems nowadays include more and
more embedded computer systems, based on different hardware
platforms. These hardware platforms, reaching from microcontrollers
to programmable logic devices, lead to fundamental
differences in design. Major differences result from different
hardware architectures and their robustness and reliability as
well as from differences in the corresponding software design.
This paper gives an overview on how these hardware platforms
differ with respect to fault handling possibilities as fault avoidance
and fault tolerance and the resulting influence on the safety
of the overall system.

From the functionality point of view, FPGAs became
very interesting for industrial applications. Reasons are the
constantly decreasing costs of microelectronics and improvements
in the corresponding design tools as well as the increasing need
of complex real-time functionalities in these applications. However,
other non-functional requirements have to be considered.
Therefore, the potentials of FPGAs for industrial applications
are considered in this paper on basis of hardware attributes
representing the contribution of these systems to system qualities
as for example performance, reliability and marketability.
