Space-grade Virtex 5QV FPGA

The Virtex™ 5QV FPGA is the industry's first high performance rad-hard reconfigurable FPGA for processing-intensive space systems. Available off-the-shelf, the device offers the highest density, performance and integration capabilities enabling more complex and capable systems over rad-hard ASIC devices with their high development costs and long lead times, or traditional one-time programmable (OTP) solutions.
