Dependability issues due to non functional properties are emerging as major cause of faults in modern digital systems. Effective countermeasures have to be presented to properly manage their critical timing effects. This paper presents a methodology to avoid transition delay faults in FPGA-based systems, with low area overhead. The approach is able to exploit temperature information and aging characteristics to minimize the cost in terms of performances degradation and power consumption. The architecture of a hardware manager able to avoid delay faults is presented and deeply analyzed, as well as its integration in the standard implementation design flow.
