TELEDYNE e2v LS1046-SPACE quad core Cortex-A72, 64-bit, space qualified edge processing platform is designed to accelerate space-based edge computing. Targeting compute intensive space applications, including high-throughput satellites, data compression, as well as artificial intelligence and imaging, the processor outperforms existing alternatives by a factor of 30x. Device blends minimal power consumption and extreme data processing, extending edge compute performance to the smallest form factors. Clocked at up to 1.8 GHz, device delivers 30k DMIPs. Moreover, a fast, 2.1 GT/s, 64-bit DDR4 SDRAM memory controller with embedded 8-bit error corrected code (ECC) is provided, plus a 2MB L2 cache shared across the four ARM cores. L1 and L2 caches also benefit from ECC-protection, providing a high degree of in-flight immunity to data corruption. The high-reliability processor is further enhanced with a wide range of embedded interfaces – including 10 Gbit Ethernet, three PCI-Express (PCIe) v.3.0 lanes, SPI, I2C, and multiple UARTs. Device is supplied in a compact 23 x 23 mm, 780-ball BGA package.
