Spacecraft Wireless Sensor ASIC

Silansys has successfully completed the Feasibility and Architecture phase of a Communications Controller ASIC for wired and wireless sensor interfaces in spacecraft.   The ASIC is the controller in a spacecraft health monitoring system that employs several standards-based wired protocols and Zigbee wireless  communications to interface between multiple sensors and the On-Board-Computer.

The ASIC and associated driver software will be developed on FPGA before implementing the ASIC in the UMC 0.18um with a radiation-hardened-by-design digital library from  IMEC.

Silansys has a proven track record in developing high performance mixed-signal ASIC’s that integrate communications, sensor interface, control, motor drive and power management in highly challenging industrial and harsh environments.
