'Our rad-hard RAD750 processor can withstand radiation doses a million times stronger than a fatal human dose, and that durability is valued on missions like the GPS III.'
Tender issuethe objective of this activity is to design manufacture and test an on-board processor (obp) for the use in regenerative payloads in leo constellations.Targeted improvements:increase the processing power of on-board regenerative processors by 20%.Description: the current generation of regenerative processors for the geo satcom market are usually based on rad-hard digital signalprocessor(dsp) or field programmable gate array (fpga) technologies which provide a moderate level of in-orbit flexibility (or even none ifanti-fuse fpgas are used).
Rad-Hard SingleBoard Computer (Rad-Hard SBC) is a smaller, more lightweight single-board computer that meets the harsh requirements of space and uses less power than any other space-grade computer that is currently available, at half the cost of similar products.
Such rad-hard components are highly reliable and can withstand harmful space radiations.
International Rectifier introduced the LSO Series of radiation-hardened (RAD-Hard) low-voltage, single- and dual-output DC-DC converter modules for satellite power systems requiring up to 15 years or more of mission life.
"By calculation, that would only occur about once in 10,000 years," JPL's analysis confirmed Maxwell's conclusion that the SCS750 architecture can provide upset rates comparable to or lower than computers employing rad-hard processors.
