This board will be a suitable platform solution for many NASA space-based observatories, fly-by spacecraft, orbiters, landers and robotic / sample return missions that require robust command and control capabilities. This miniaturized SIP will be an ideal companion chip to locate with sensors (either analog or digital output types) to perform signal conditioning close to the sensing element. This is advantageous as signals are cleaner at the source without the electrical noise pollution that long signal paths introduce. The device is based upon a programmable microcontroller that is therefore flexible for many highly reliable embedded processing or sensor readout application. When software is programmed into the device, it becomes a custom solution. Programming the device and supporting software will be straightforward as it based on an existing ARM Cortex architecture.
There is a demand for a highly integrated SIP like this in commercial space applications, particularly satellites. The benefit of this part over closest fit existing solutions is that there are no state-of-the-art (based on ARM Cortex) "mid-range" embedded processors that are available in a small footprint with NVM and a precision analog-to-digital convertor. Commercial space system developers that would have an interest in this SIP would include SpaceX, Tyvak, SSTL, SSL, Spire, Pumpkin, Planet Labs, Planetary Resources, GomSpace, Clyde Space, Innovative Solutions in Space, Boeing, Astranis and Raytheon.
