About: The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) is pleased to host a Workshop on the Utilization of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) in Canadian Space Missions.
FPGA technology has dramatically evolved over the past years, providing major advantages and exciting new capabilities for development of space-born systems. Development methodology, cost, electronic circuit card size, mass, power consumption, performances and verification are some of the areas that have been drastically impacted by the use of these new components, posing new challenges in planning, development and management. Once termed “Firmware”, FPGA’s have now evolved to include one or more IP Core processors, offering unprecedented flexibility to designers.
