Avnet Silica's Space Special
09 Jul 2020 - 31 Dec 2020
Introducing the XQRKU060 – the world’s first 20nm Space FPGA.
Avnet Silica would like to invite you to join our Space Special. Xilinx will present their new 20nm Space FPGA – the XQRKU060. Afterwards we will hear from Renesas and Teledyne e2v who will present power and data acquisition solutions for the XQRKU060.
- Powering Space
- Radiation Hardened Power Management Products
- FPGA Power Rail Requirements
- Selecting Devices suitable for each power rail
- XQRKU060 Power Solution Eval Board ref design.
Teledyne e2v will cover applications for their high speed data converters in space using the XQRKU060. The technical aspects of interfacing high speed data converters to the FPGA will be covered and a highly efficient serial interface will be detailed. Solutions for direct conversion up to Ka band will be outlined. In addition a 30 GigaMIPs Quad ARM A72 co-processor for the XQRKU060 FPGA will be described along with a space grade DDR4 memory solution to accompany this processing power.
