All FPGAs share several design methodologies, yet each of them face specific challenges. The anti-fuse FPGAs are currently heavily used in most electronic equipment for space yet there are other technologies which use in space is growing: Flash-based and SRAM-based. The use of COTS FPGA is also increasing; specially for space missions with shorter lifetime and less quality constraints.

The aim of the workshop is to share experiences and wishes among FPGA designers, FPGA vendors and research teams developing methodologies to address radiation mitigation techniques and reconfigurable systems.

The topics related to FPGAs for space are covering (not limited to):

    - FPGA for Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learning
    - general design, verification and test issues and good practices
    - performance achievements and potential problems
    - power consumption achievements and potential issues
    - design tools performance, good practices and potential limitations
    - radiation mitigation techniques, tools and potential limitations
    - trends of FPGA usage in space applications
    - partial/total in-flight reconfigurable systems
    - lessons learned: ensuring successful and safe use of FPGA in space applications
    - choosing the best FPGA type for our space application
    - export license limitations / changes / ITAR / EAR
     -package and assembly challenges
    - companion non-volatile memory (when required) experience
    - high level synthesis (HLS) and model based design (MBD) approaches used for flight designs

The main FPGA vendors will present updates and will be available for questions. The detailed agenda will we published closer to the event. Presentations from the major design groups are expected.

Submission of abstracts is now open via this website.
The deadline for submitting an abstract has been extended to February 10, 2023.

A Demo Session and Exhibit will be organised on the first day of the Workshop during the Welcome Reception at the Wintergarden South.

Attendance to the workshop is free of charge.
Registration is required via this website, and an Indico account is required for it (company email address only, not personal one).

To create an Indico account go to the top right corner and choose “Log in”, then “create one here” and follow the given instructions.
After an account has been created you can register using this Indico event site.

The materials presented at the workshop are intended to be published on this website after the event. All material presented at the workshop must, before submission, be cleared of any restrictions preventing it from being published on this website.
