Embryonic systems are cellular arrays with reconfiguration characteristics similar to those found in biological cellular organisms. Properties such as multicellular organisation, cellular differentiation and cellular division provide embryonic arrays with biological-like fault tolerance properties. This paper presents the detailed description of a basic cell to be used as the building block of embryonic arrays. The implementation and simulation of a voter circuit and a counter are presented as examples to show the effectiveness of embryonic arrays in terms of functionality and fault-tolerance.
