Abstract It is of paramount importance that design organizations and suppliers of FPGA platforms to be utilized in nuclear safety applications adopt rigorous V&V; processes and techniques in compliance with widely recognized industry standards. The above challenge has been fully embraced by RPC Radiy in the form of a V&V; plan that is in general compliance with IEC 61508 for platforms to be used in nuclear safety applications in North America. This paper describes details of the above program which is designed to evolve and adapt to meet further challenges as we advance in our working relations and seek to meet specific requirements of utilities, regulators and design organizations in the Americas, Asia and Europe.
