Space-Grade FPGAs for Distributed Processing

Space programs are adopting distributed processing architectures to build in more scalable performance and higher reliability. Until now, space programs had small or large FPGAs which either under, or over-deliver. Our new FPGAs meet the needs of distributed space architectures by bringing mission-matched scalable performance for efficient, system-wide technology reuse.

Certus™-NX-RT FPGAs are fabricated using a 28nm fully depleted silicon-on-Insulator (FD-SOI) process that is inherently radiation tolerant, reducing single event effects (SEE). For additional assurance our FPGAs have built-in memory error detection and correction tailored to the needs of modern space missions.
