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):
- 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 (presenting new or ongoing work, avoiding repetitions of what has already been presented at RADECS, NSREC and SEE Symposium)
- trends of FPGA usage in space applications
- 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
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 at least the major design groups (Large System Integrators) are expected.
Have you not been contacted yet to present and are you interested in presenting?: Please contact us and/or submit your abstract.
Do you need space for demonstrating hardware and/or a booth? Please contact us.
The workshop duration will be 3 days.
Attendance to the workshop is free of charge.
It is advised to register as soon as possible in order to ensure your place.
Registration is required via the website not later than 30 March 2018.
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 the website.
