Developed to support the Xilinx XQRKU060 FPGA, the RH5210 radiation-tolerant power module provides a drop-in SWaP-optimized power solution for many radiation-sensitive applications and platforms such as satellite and launch vehicles, remote-controlled robotic devices, mission-critical computing systems, and any electronic system with the potential for radiation exposure. The off-the-shelf power supply, says the company, enables advanced edge-processing applications, accelerating the ability to bring AI processing directly to orbit in support of earth imaging, sensor fusion, and hypersonic missile threat mitigation.

“New satellites equipped with breakthrough digital payload electronics require high-density, clean power to support advanced FPGAs required for low-latency, on-orbit edge processing,” says Tom Smelker, vice president and general manager, Mercury Microsystems. “Our new RHS5210 power module replaces several larger, standalone power supplies in typically half the space, freeing up valuable payload capacity for other critical electronics.”

Key features include:

  • 11 integrated power supplies with inductors
  • Simple, drop-in design for easy integration with Xilinx XQRKU060 FPGA
  • Built for space with fully rad-tolerant components
  • Onshore trusted manufacturing in a DMEA-accredited facility
