Xilinx has significantly expanded its range of FPGA devices qualified for use in space.
Following the popularity of the XQRKU060 launched last year, the XQR Versal space-grade portfolio includes the new Versal AI Core and Versal AI Edge series devices. These are packaged in ruggedized, organic ball grid array packaging with extended qualification and burn-in supporting Mil-Std-883 Class B-grade flow and full radiation tolerance.
These XQR devices are targeted for on-board data processing and machine learning (ML) inference in satellite and space 2.0 applications.
The XQR Versal ACAP is a highly capable and adaptable device with 3D packaging of chiplets on top of an FPGA fabric with support for full reconfiguration while in orbit. The space-grade XQR Versal AI Core device is targeted for availability in late Q2 2022.
