Abstract
Modern space tracking and surveillance systems are being required to provide ever-increasing sensor resolution and real-time processing of image data. Existing rad-hard stream computing solutions are large, heavy, and require excessive power, and still do not meet the real-time computing throughput needed for modern image processing. There is a need to support missions using low-cost, rapid-deployment, configurable satellites. Intrinsix proposes to build a 300 krad(Si) rad-hard, heterogeneous, multicore System-on-Chip. Rad-Hard-by-Design techniques enable the design to be targeted for a high density process technology. The implementation will be a highly modular and scalable architecture consisting of several Digital Signal Processing cores and several General Purpose Processing cores. The cores will be interconnected with each other and with on-chip memories using a modern high-throughput Network-on-Chip technology. The SoC will be capable of running modern Real-Time Operating Systems, and will support high performance communications. The overall SoC is intended to support the Air Force Space Plug-and-Play Avionics architecture. In addition to supporting the needs of image processing, a design needs to support data processing requirements for a variety of other sensors, widening the available use cases within a space system.
