  • Introducing the world’s first 28nm semiconductor for space
  • Dorian, please contact Mr Ching Hu at chu@altera.com to get more information on Altera's, COTS FPGA for Space. I have just completed my first design of the space part and may be able to help you if you have any questions - hope you enjoy the future tutorials! Rajan.

  • Introducing the world’s first 28nm semiconductor for space
  • Steve, The 5SGXMA7H2F35C2 will be perfect for the next generation of launchers: it has the necessary processing capability, is low power and affordable. The shuttle had some cool parallel processing implemented for reliability. Rajan.

  • Satellite anatomy 101
  • Hi Krunal, Fully-qualified, QV parts are planned and it will be the same die as the commercial, plastic version which has been available for a number of years. The leading performance, low static and dynamic power together with the ability to optimise the implemented design for power consumption, as well as low cost, offers our industry new processing opportunities. 28 nm is naturally good for total dose, an epi layer and low-core voltage protect against latch-up, and lots of in-built, mitigation features safeguard the configuration and user memories against SEUs. Rajan.

  • It's time to SPICE up your life!
  • Hi Piero, thank you for sharing details of Spicy Swan, I was aware of NGSPICE. How would you rate the IPAD/IPhone version and have you ever used it to model voltage regulators and feedback loops? I like the idea of having a circuit simulator on my phone!
