The aerospace industry witnessed the launch of the first 20 nanometer space-grade FGPA, which was developed by Xilinx Inc., a leading company involved in the field of adaptive and intelligent computing. This new 20nm Radiation Tolerant (RT) Kintex® UltraScale™ XQRKU060 FGPA would offer a complete radiation tolerance and provide ultra-high throughput and bandwidth performance to satellites and for other space-related applications. Further, the newly developed technology uses high performance machine learning (ML) for space applications, which consist of various ML tools such as PyTorch and TensorFlow.
The advanced technology offers neural network interference acceleration for the purpose of real-time processing in space. The device contains a power efficient compute with a large on-chip memory. It delivers 5.7 tera operations per second (TOPs) of peak INT8 performance, which can be used for missions for both short and long duration. Along with this, there is a substantial reduction in size and weight of the device with highly tolerant features.
The XQRKU060 provides reconfigurable processing which enables the satellites to provide video on demand and update in real-time through real-time and on-board processing and machine learning acceleration. These features provide the device with the abilities such as object detection, image classification and scientific analysis and increase the overall efficiency of the machine on ground as well as in the space.
Apart from these, the XQRKU060 contains a 40x40mm ceramic packaging which protects the machine by withstanding vibrations and radiation effects during launch or during harsh environmental conditions.
