    ABSTRACT: Westinghouse company (WEC) had developed a Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) approved advanced logic system (ALS) platform based on field programmable gate array (FPGA) technology as the next generation 1E class platform for protection and monitoring system (PMS) development for nuclear power plants. In compliance with the requirements of typical PMS functions, a new ALS based PMS is designed by overcoming the restrictions of communication modules etc. The consistency with data communication independence and isolation, deterministic, diversity requirements etc. is analyzed. The evaluations indicate the design meets the requirements and can be applied for coming projects.
