With need for rapid deployment of flexible payloads and capability to process complex data in space, the requirements for cutting-edge FPGAs that can address this need is quickly growing. To enable technology in the new applications particularly to improve bandwidth, accommodate increasing number of channels in high performance data handling, a high level of gate density, embedded high speed gigabit serial links, high performance and capability to change algorithms in space, SRAM based FPGAs are being increasingly preferred.
In this session, Xilinx will cover its latest 20nm Adaptable Kintex FPGAs targeted for these applications. The latest on qualification completion, screening flows, Vivado software availability, radiation characteristics and ecosystem solutions like space-IP, memories will be presented. Complex and evolving machine learning algorithms can be serviced by Xilinx solutions without swapping out existing hardware. Use cases for modern satellite constellations with Xilinx FPGAs on board will be shared.
