Rad Hard FPGAs

Microchip offers new alternatives for space applications with the SRAM-based FPGA series. In addition to their reprogrammability, Microchip FPGAs support innovative built-in Single Event Upset (SEU) protection. This allows application design without using mitigation techniques that can triple the gate count, thus saving development resources and FPGA cost.

Microchip rad hard FPGAs are intended for low gate count designs requiring low-power applications.
