LEON3-FT-RTAX used as instrument controller in the Chandrayaan-1 satellite
Gaisler Research and University of Bergen (Norway) signs license agreement for the use of the Fault Tolerant LEON3 processor in the Sir-2 instrument. The Sir-2 instrument is a near infrared spectrometer chosen to be a payload on the Indian Chandrayaan-1 satellite.
The fault tolerant LEON3 processor in combination with the radiation tolerant ACTEL RTAX2000S FPGA presents a competitive alternative to the processors currently used by the space industry. The processor is offered in standard configurations, including a floating point unit and either MIL-STD-1553, CAN or SpaceWire bus interfaces. The LEON3 on the RTAX2000S FPGA gives a performance which is higher than most space qualified processors currently available at a very competitive price.
