Application Examples

Microchip space rated FPGAs can be reprogrammed during their flight thanks to a simple interface that can be managed by a processor/microcontroller. Interconnecting the FPGA and the microcontroller with only a few IOs allows to manage the complete reprogramming process.

The microcontroller controls the in-flight programming process of the RT FPGA

  • Accept new programming Direct C bitstream from up-link via telecommand system, store it in memory
  • Place FPGA into programming mode
  • Execute Direct C code to initiate transfer of programming bitstream to FPGA
  • Monitor FPGA return to operation, and re-initiate programming in case of programming upset
