In this paper, we present an automated test frame-
work for the characterization of stochastic behavior in logic
circuits. The framework is intended as a platform for experimenting with and providing statistics on digital architectures given
behavioral uncertainties at the gate-level. As an experimental
platform, we propose to use an FPGA due to the proven value
of reconfigurable architectures in design space exploration. We
hypothesize that stochastic behavior can be introduced in FPGAs
using external noise sources; a fact that is later confirmed by
characterizing the behavior of an FPGA IO block subject to
voltage/frequency scaling and Vdd -noise. The framework provides
easy interfacing with laboratory equipment, design of experiment
capabilities and automatic test execution, thus providing a powerful tool for characterizing stochastic behavior in reconfigurable
