Radiation-Hard Parallel DSP (RH-PDSP)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Coherent Logix, Incorporated (CLX) proposes to develop a radiation-hardened, highly efficient, parallel digital signal processor (PDSP) integrated circuit. For non-radiation-hardened applications, CLX is developing a new, revolutionary, highly-efficient, ultra low power signal processor based on its patent pending HyperX, architecture. The HyperX architecture is exceptionally well-suited to the digital signal processing requirements of Space-Based Radar. Based on simulation studies, including SAR algorithms mapped to it, HyperX processing solutions provide orders of magnitude improvement in computation and energy efficiencies when compared to other current state-of-the-art approaches. Thus, radiation-hardened HyperX processors will provide the performance, programmability, and ultra-low power required for spacecraft applications (fewer solar-cell panels to hoist into orbit). In the Phase I program, Coherent Logix will work with the customer to determine the appropriate algorithms and scenarios to be implemented in an operational prototype solution for Phase II. Throughout the Phase I and Phase II, Coherent Logix will look to partner with leading space computer developers and spacecraft integrators to maximize radiation-hardened applications, to increase unit volume which will drive down costs.
