Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions Radiation Hardened Microelectronics Support New Xilinx XQRKU060 FPGA

We have announced today that a variety of our radiation hardened (RadHard) solutions and Intellectual Property (IP) cores for space applications, provide support for the new Xilinx Radiation Tolerant (RT) Kintex UltraScale XQRKU060 Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). Cobham Gaisler provides IP cores to be used with the XQRKU060.

The GRSRCUB FPGA scrubber and supervisor IP core supports programming the XQRKU060 and several periodic scrubbing modes to prevent accumulation of errors in the FPGA configuration memory.

Cobham Gaisler's GRLIB IP library that contains over 100 peripheral IP cores together with the NOEL-V RISC-V processor and the LEON3FT and LEON5FT SPARC processors have been adapted to support system-on-a-chip designs targeting the XQRKU060.

SELENE: Self-monitored Dependable platform for High-Performance Safety-Critical Systems

High-performance computing that employs commercial off-the-shelf components offers an alternative path to increasing the computational capability of safety-critical applications. Despite their potential in a number of domains, use of these systems is limited due to the lack of certified, reliable hardware platforms. The EU funded SELENE project aims to change this by proposing a safety-critical cognitive computing platform with self-aware and self-adaptive capabilities. Cobham Gaisler's NOEL-V processor implementing the RISC-V instruction set architecture is used in the project.

Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions’ GR712RC Processor Runs CHEOPS’ Instrument Flight Software

The first ESA S-class mission CHEOPS, which stands for CHaracterising ExOPlanet Satellite, recently lifted off on a Soyuz rocket from Europe's spaceport in Kourou. The satellite contains one payload, a 32 cm diameter on-axis telescope. The Data Processing Unit (DPU) within the Back-End Electronics (BEE) of the telescope was built by the Space Research Institute (Institut für Weltraumforschung, IWF) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Graz, Austria. The DPU is based on the Radiation-Hardened GR712RC LEON3FT Dual-Core Microprocessor.

See the LEON5 and NOEL-V video clip

The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra has produced our video clip promoting the new LEON5 and NOEL-V processor IP cores that will be released on 25 December for  download into Xilinx’ Kintex UltraSCALE FPGAs. The original music score has been composed by Hans Ek who has also conducted the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra when it was performed  as part of Kosmische Musik at the Gothenburg Concert Hall on 27 October 2018, 


Cobham Releases RISC-V Processor IP Core

Cobham Gaisler has announced  at the RISC-V Summit in San Jose, California, that it will release a new line of processor Intellectual Property (IP) cores that implements the RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA). The NOEL-V processor IP core, the first product in the family, will be made available on 25 December for download into Xilinx’ Kintex UltraSCALE FPGAs.
