With an unrivaled flight heritage in space applications using our SPARC® processor-based MPUs, we are meeting the advanced requirements of a new generation of space applications with our Arm® Cortex® core-based rad-hard solutions.
Our rad-tolerant portfolio is based on our widely deployed commercial AVR, SAM and dsPIC devices. Featuring proven and industry-leading cores and peripherals, these rad-tolerant devices are robust against radiation effects and insure latch up immunity and non-destruction in critical environments.
We offer high-reliability MCUs and MPUs with extended temperatures of up to −55°C to +125°C. These products are selected for their maturity and their wide and successful deployment in the automotive and industrial markets.
Take advantage of the benefits of the first Arm core-based microcontrollers that combine the low-cost and large ecosystem benefits of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) technology with space-qualified versions that offer scalable levels of radiation performance. These solutions will allow you to prototype on a less-expensive COTS device before implementing your design with a space-grade component, reducing your development time and costs.
Find out how you can use our power management solutions to reduce the total footprint size of your MCU- or MPU-based design, maximize power density and save valuable PCB space.
Create flexible and powerful MCU- or MPU-based systems using our crystal, MEMS oscillator and multiple-output clock generator.
These evaluation boards are available to support your development of aerospace and defense applications using our MCUs and MPUs:
