Space ﬂight systems have experienced rapid generational development over the last sixty years. From military, to weather, to earth observation, and telecommunications (particularly as 5G networks globally advance), one technological problem has been consistent throughout–selecting and implementing a fast and reliable space qualiﬁed microprocessor.
This fundamental requirement must have the computing power/speed, size, weight, power dissipation, and cost that will meet the challenges and adaptability necessary for radiation tolerant space/satellite developments. Now, as the future of state-of-the-art heavy computing requires next generation COTS (commercially available off-the-shelf) space qualified radiation tolerant processors, Teledyne e2v’s “LS1046-Space” Quad Core ARM® Cortex®-A72 microprocessor revolutionizes the heavy computing requirements for space/satellite developments in the upcoming decades.
Utilizing GHz class high performance data processing from NXP QorIQ® LS1046 Microprocessor (30K DMIPS @ 1.8 GHz): its natural high speed interfaces, combined with convenient software programming (and reconfigurable capabilities), along with Teledyne e2v’s proven tolerance and mitigation techniques against radiation; makes Teledyne e2v’s LS1046-Space microprocessor the most suitable device enabling intelligent compute intensive space/satellite platforms.
