Research Institution
Colorado Engineering, Inc. (CEI) proposes to combine its extensive expertise with embedded hardware and software design with anti-tamper (AT) technology to develop a tamper resistant, heterogeneous, scalable, morphable, reconfigurable/programmable, modular, multiprocessor, embedded computer architecture consisting of a microprocessor, a digital signal processor (DSP), a field programmable gate array (FPGA), and a graphics processing unit (GPU) with integrated power management. The system will also provide flexible data acquisition and network interface modules including analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), digital-to-analog converters (DACs), 1Gb and 10Gb Ethernet, and Infiniband. The proposed effort is based upon its existing Reconfigurable Advanced Rapid-prototype Environment (RARE) technology and will result in a tamper-resistant embedded processing system ideal for realizing computationally demanding embedded processing solutions within the tight cost, size, weight, and power (C-SWaP) budgets often dictated by Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) applications.
