A contract has been signed by Gaisler Research AB and Saab Ericsson Space AB. The aim of the contract is to develop and validate a System on a Chip ASIC intended for future European Space missions. The ASIC is based on the fault tolerant LEON2 processor, with additional functions to interface various equipment and payload within a spacecraft.
This contract is yet another example where the LEON processor is used in complex System On a Chip designs. The use of the GRLIB IP- library, ideally suited for SoC designs and implementing plug and play capabilities, greatly minimizes the engineering effort, says Sandi Habinc the System Manager of Gaisler Research AB.
