Teaser text

Aerospace systems with high performance, real-time requirements are increasingly implemented using commercially available field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). This requires FPGA-based systems able to operate in high radiation environments.

Body Text

Competitive advantage

  • Rapid, power efficient recovery from radiation-induced errors in FPGAs to achieve state-of-the-art system availability and reliability rates
  • High-level synthesis of reliable subsystems to reduce design, implementation and test timeframes
  • Functional verification tools to validate dynamically re-configurable FPGA designs


  • Reliable FPGA-based mission critical systems designed to operate in high radiation environments
  • Flexibility to rapidly adapt to changing environments and new requirements
  • Reduced system lifecycle costs

Successful applications

  • Dynamic partial reconfiguration demonstrator, Defence Science and Technology (DST)
  • RUSH reconfigurable hardware platform for exploring new reliability techniques developed and flown on EU QB50 CubeSat and Hydra mission to the International Space Station, with further missions planned
  • Rapidly generating highly reliable FPGA implementations, Thales Alenia Space and General Dynamics NZ
