An approach to design fault tolerant hexagonal systolic array (SA) for multiplication of rectangular matrices is described. The approach comprises of three steps. First, redundancies are introduced at the computational level by deriving three equivalent algorithms but with disjoint index spaces. Second, we perform the accommodation of index spaces to the projection direction to obtain hexagonal SA with optimal number of processing elements (PE) for a given problem size. Finally, we perform mapping of the accommodated index spaces into fault tolerant systolic array using valid transformation matrix. As a result we obtain SA with optimal number of PEs which perform fault-tolerant matrix multiplication. In the case of square matrices of order N  N this array comprises of N 2  2 N PEs with active computation time t c  5N -- 4 time units.
