"...4,000 hours non-stop at 125 Celsius..., withstanding...80 MeV of radiation energy per centimetre square..."
But can it survive being in a kid's video console?
Xilinx today launched what it claims is the world's first space-grade 20nm FPGA designed to run tiny machine-learning models within satellites and spacecraft, as well as other tasks. The Radiation Tolerant Kintex UltraScale XQRKU060 chip, manufactured by TSMC, is the latest addition to Xilinx's family of space-safe hardware. …
There are some things which - if you have to ask the price - are too expensive for you. Space-rated electronics would be one of these things; a PowerPC RAD 750 by BAE is supposedly north of 200k USD, and that's for one processor chip that runs at about 200MHz and has a transistor count of 10.9M done on 250nm silicon.
So ... how much for the Xilinx FPGA ? Icon of Paris crying because she can't afford one either.
