RTAX-S/SL and RTAX-DSP FPGAs offer high performance at densities of up to four million equivalent system gates for space-based applications. Based upon the Microsemi commercial Axcelerator family, RTAX-S/SL and RTAX-DSP have several system-level features such as embedded SRAM (with built-in FIFO control logic), segmentable clocks, chip-wide highway routing, and carry logic.
Featuring SEU-hardened flip-flops that offer the benefits of user-implemented Triple Module Redundancy (TMR) without the associated overhead, the RTAX-S/SL and RTAX-DSP families are the second generation of Microsemi’s products for space applications. RTAX-S/SL and RTAX-DSP devices are manufactured using a 0.15 µm technology at a UMC facility in Taiwan. These devices offer levels of radiation survivability far in excess of typical CMOS devices.
