Performance Enhanced Managed FPGA
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
The Performance Enhanced Managed Field Programmable Gate Array (PEM-FPGA) is a system component that contains an FPGA, microprocessor, and security features, packaged within a Multichip Module (MCM) that provides important services, such as dynamic partial reconfiguration, defragmentation, secure bitstream decryption, and anti-tamper management. These features make this enhanced FPGA a sustainable, upgradeable component for use in a wide variety of DoD applications. Innovations include the use of a microprocessor to manage the FPGA, perform full and partial reconfiguration, defragmentation, and security functions. The algorithms running on the microprocessor are implemented in a standard high level language (i.e., C/C++), easing the upgrade and maintenance cycle as new techniques become available. Security features include basic key management, programmable decryption algorithms for bitstream security, and Anti-Tamper management. Leveraging our team's experience as one of the Nation's leading aerospace network innovators (MIL-STD-1553, AS 1773, IEEE 1393), and our expertise in MCM development and production, Space Photonics, Inc. (SPI) is in a unique position to successfully develop the PEM- FPGA system component.
