Digital Instrumentation and Controls

Instrumentation and Controls (I&C) systems that use digital devices in safety systems make extensive use of advanced technology, such that equipment and design practices are expected to be significantly different from current designs.  The deployment of digital technology in nuclear facilities has the potential to improve safety and operational performance.

The NRC is committed to licensing digital technology in safety system applications. See the following links for more information on the NRC's continuing efforts to find solutions for technical challenges that affect licensing of digital systems for both operating and new reactors and at other nuclear facilities.
