Space-Grade Programmable Logic

05 May 2024

Supporting RISC-V system implementations, the Microchip MPFS460 PolarFire SoC FPGA is a radiation-tolerant device optimised for space deployment.

It features a multi-core Linux-capable processing resource which is highly suited to use in mission-critical scenarios, such as satellite hardware, etc. It has up to 50% lower power consumption than competing SRAM-based FPGAs. Furthermore, it is not vulnerable to radiation-caused configuration memory upsets, like these other devices can be. A 100krad total ionising dose (TID) figure and a >75 MeV.cm2/m single-event latch-up (SEL) figure will be benefited from - thereby assuring long-term operation once the systems it is incorporated into have gone into orbit. It is supplied in a hermetically-sealed ball grid array package.
