Re: Which one is the most reliable Microcontroller?

I agree that the lower cost gives popularity and most beginners will prefer to use lower cost Microcontrollers. Commercial Electronics also will use low cost Microcontrollers but there are many applications where money is not a primary consideration or problem and few companies do developed High Rad and Very High Temperature Microcontroller / Microprocessor.
Identical LOGIC can be copied into high reliability FPGA and hence that is the block which is supposed to be most reliable one.
We can discuss here mainly two things
Relatively least sensitive Microcontrollers
Method for elimination of Brown out Microcontroller in multiple Microcontroller environment and implementation of voting system
Superior watch dog circuit
Reference to superior FPGA for Microcontroller
Reliable Clock circuit
Reliable voltage Regulator
Reliable Memory, which is generally a part of the FPGA
