Colorado Springs, CO – Frontgrade, a leader in advanced mission-critical electronics for aerospace and defense, has attained the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Qualified Manufacturers List Class V (QML-V) rating for the high speed Low Voltage Differential Signaling or LVDS. This QML-V qualification assures customers that the device has been through the harshest and most rigorous testing standards that the space industry requires. Frontgrade's LVDS is a quad-channel repeater that is protocol independent and uses differential signaling methodology for providing reliable communication.

“Frontgrade has over 30 years of history offering a strong portfolio of QML rated products that deliver the highest levels of assurance, reliability and quality for space. We are excited to add the high speed LVDS product to our growing QML portfolio to support your mission critical needs,” said Mike Elias, Chief Executive Officer, Frontgrade.  

The best-in-class low power and high speed LVDS repeater supports 10 meters of cable up to 1.25Gbps. Users can maximize the flexibility of the device by utilizing the cold-sparing feature, coupled with user-supplied external TX/RX LVDS data streams. The device is ideal for protecting and buffering high-speed LVDS between FPGA’s and processors communicating off-board and in cold-spare platforms in satellites.

The small footprint device, measuring 9x10mm in a ceramic package, delivers the connectivity and SWaP performance required for modern space missions utilizing high bandwidth processors and FPGAs.
