Introducing the Industry’s First 20nm Space-Grade FPGA

The new 20nm Radiation Tolerant (RT) Kintex® UltraScale™ XQRKU060 FPGA, enables unlimited on-orbit reconfiguration and machine learning in space for real time on-board-processing. With 10x DSP compute capacity compared to prior space product generations, the XQRKU060 provides extensive pipelining and extension capabilities that enhance the speed and efficiency of applications. The on-orbit reconfiguration capabilities, together with real-time on-board processing ML, allows satellites to update in real-time, deliver video-on-demand and perform compute “on-the-fly” to process complex algorithms. The XQRKU060also also features robust 40x40 mm ceramic packaging, making it more than capable of withstanding the vibrations of launch and radiation of space in orbit.
