SpaceWire Remote Terminal Controller prototype delivered to ESA

The European Space Agency (ESA) is funding a development activity aimed at designing, manufacturing and validating a SpaceWire Remote Terminal Controller (RTC), an embedded system for space applications, implemented as an Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC).

The SpaceWire RTC is based on the GRLIB IP core library and the LEON2-FT VHDL model. The ASIC features SpaceWire and CAN bus interfaces, and will be manufactured on a 0,18 um radiation hardened technology. The SpaceWire RTC is being developed under a contract awarded to Saab Ericsson Space (S), teamed with Gaisler Research (S) and Atmel (F).

LEON used in space-based supercomputer design at Los Alamos

The Los Alamos National Laboratory has announced the funding of a new space payload in which the fault tolerant LEON2 processor will be used. The the new space payload will dramatically increases on-orbit computational capabilities. The project is jointly sponsored by the National Nuclear Security Administration's (NNSA) Office of Nonproliferation Research and Development (NA-22), and the U.S. Department of Defense.

The new payload based on a platform of field-programmable gate array (FPGA), on Atmel Corporation's new AT697 RadHard SPARC processor which is based on the LEON2 fault tolerant processor IP core, and on new chalcogenide C-RAM. Read more in the press release from the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
