Radiation-Tolerant Reprogrammable FPGA for Digital Signal Processing Circuits, Phase II

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Radiation-Tolerant Reprogrammable FPGA for Digital Signal Processing Circuits, Phase II
Field Programmable Gate Arrays are a widely used technology; however, they are generally limited in reprogrammability. Radiation hard, low power and high density ReProgrammable FPGAs (RP-FPGAs) would be a tremendous asset in long duration missions. The ability to adapt to changing mission profiles and on board capabilities is highly desirable. We are developing a RP-FPGA technology for flight use. In Phase I we have proven basic device concepts--increasing temperature stability, demonstrating scalable production process, and developing refining Phase II tasks. We have achieved this success by working with a leading FPGA manufacturer, and the enabling materials technology inventor and others. The range of technical interactions has also been increased as a result of the Phase I effort. In Phase II we will develop a viable demonstration prototype that will enable routine Phase III device manufacture. Present work has shown the desired end should be well achievable. More »
