[Via Satellite 08-21-2015] E2v has launched a new grade of high-performance microprocessors based on the multicore processors from the Freescale QorIQ family. These processors produce tens of Gflop (1 billion floating-point operations per second) of performance, and are radiation hardened for space grade reliability.
E2v’s quality checks include inspection procedures, screening, dynamic burn-in and qualification on each batch to eliminate potential defects. Suitable space applications include satellite constellations, CubeSats and Micro-Sats and launch vehicles.
“The new quality grade eliminates any chance of early failures guaranteeing the reliability, which space applications demand,” said Richard Gibbs, president of semiconductors at e2v.
