Radiation-tolerant FPGAs take high speed signal processing to space

The designation, the highest level of qualification for space components and a necessary step to satisfy mission assurance requirements on many space programs, opens the door for Microsemi’s RTG4 FPGAs to be used on the most critical space missions with the highest standards for quality and reliability.

Claimed to be the first and only radiation-tolerant FPGA offering more than 150,000 logic elements to achieve a QML Class V qualification, Microsemi’s RTG4 FPGAs can now be used by developers in Class 1 space flight systems, bringing the cost and schedule advantages of FPGAs to the most demanding space missions.

Many space programs are constrained to use these Class V-qualified components due to the need for the highest level of quality and reliability, and until now have been unable to use a high-speed radiation-tolerant FPGA in their signal processing systems. RTG4 FPGAs now fill this void in the marketplace, providing more signal processing bandwidth than has been previously available in radiation-tolerant non-volatile FPGAs and enabling designers of satellite on-board data processing systems to take advantage of the easy prototyping and fast design cycle times FPGAs provide.
