            7th Mil/Aerospace Applications of Programmable
            Logic Devices International Conference (MAPLD)

         Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center
                           Washington, D.C.
                        September 8-10, 2004

                Hosted by the NASA Office of Logic Design

   The 7th annual MAPLD International Conference's extensive program
   will include presentations, seminars, workshops, and exhibits
   on programmable logic devices and technologies, digital engineering,
   and related fields for military and aerospace applications.
   Devices, technologies, logic design, flight applications, fault
   tolerance, usage, reliability, radiation susceptibility, and
   encryption applications of programmable devices, processors,
   and adaptive computing systems in military and aerospace systems
   are among the subjects for the conference.

   We are planning an exciting event with presentations by
   Government, industry, and academia, including talks by
   distinguished Invited Speakers.   This conference is open to
   US and foreign participation and is not classified.  For related
   information, please see the NASA Office of Logic Design Web Site
   ( ).

   This year, there will be special emphasis on the following themes:

      • "War Stories" and Lessons Learned
      • Programmable Logic and Obsolescence Issues
      • Implementing high performance, high reliability processor cores.
      • Logic design evaluation, design guidelines, and recommendations.
      • Verification methods for radiation hardness and fault tolerance.
      • Applications such as MIL-STD interfaces, UAV's, and controllers.
      • Automated Checkers for low reliability design constructs.
      • PLD tools/methods that we need but vendors don't supply.

   CONFERENCE HOME PAGE - - contains
   an abundance of information on both technical and programmatic
   aspects of the conference.

   SEMINARS - Two full-day seminars will be presented:

      • VHDL Synthesis for High-Reliability Systems
      • Aerospace Mishaps and Lessons Learned


      • "Why Is Space Exploration So Hard?  The Roles of Man and Machine"


      • Mitigation Methods for Reprogrammable Logic in
           The Space Radiation Environment
      • Reconfigurable Computing - New Extended Format!
      • PLD Failures, Analyses, and the Impact on Systems - NEW for 2004!
      • Digital Engineering and Computer Design - A Retrospective and
           Lessons Learned for Today's Engineers
      • "An Application Engineer's View" - Back for 2004!
      • "NESC and Software" - a joint session of MAPLD and the NASA
           Engineering and Saftey Center


      • Applications: Military and Aerospace
      • Systems and Design Tools
      • Radiation and Mitigation Techniques
      • Processors: General Purpose and Arithmetic
      • Reconfigurable Computing, Evolvable Hardware, and Security
