VORAGO Technologies announces low-cost and immediately available rad-tolerant hi-rel MCU for New Space, LEO market
With an innovative move to combat semiconductor lead times, component availability issues, and the use of unreliable automotive and COTS parts in space, VORAGO introduces a readily available rad-tolerant Arm® Cortex-M0, VA10805, with TID protection up to 300 krad(Si) for the emerging space market.
"As commercialization of space continues to grow, so does the need for reliable, affordable, and immediately available component options for cost-sensitive aerospace projects and missions. VORAGO is proud to be a part of that venture. In recent times, the semiconductor industry has experienced major supply shortages and extensive lead times. Our team at VORAGO recognized this problem and have provided a solution. We are excited to bring to the market our immediately available radiation-tolerant, cost-effective VA10805. – Dr. Hannah Moore, Sr. Manager, Product Management, VORAGO Technologies
Created with VORAGO's patented HARDSIL® technology specifically to provide competitive radiation protection for space applications, the VA10805 provides significantly more total ionizing dose protection than competing products. The VA10805 is an ideal solution for LEO missions, CubeSat and SmallSat constellations in need of immediately available radiation-tolerant microcontroller capabilities.
VORAGO's VA10805 includes the following features and benefits:
