Space-Grade FPGAs for Distributed Processing
Space programs are adopting distributed processing architectures to build in more scalable performance and higher reliability. Until now, space programs had small or large FPGAs which either under, or over-deliver. Our new FPGAs meet the needs of distributed space architectures by bringing mission-matched scalable performance for efficient, system-wide technology reuse.

Combining our space heritage and FPGA domain knowledge, Frontgrade and Lattice are making distributed processing systems efficient with our purpose-built radiation tolerant Certus/Pro-NX-RT FPGAs. Designed by Lattice, The Low Power Programmable Device Leader, our expertise is adding critical space flight assurance with our rad-tolerant IP cores required for harsh environments.
Certus/Pro-NX-RT FPGAs are fabricated using a 28nm fully depleted silicon-on-Insulator (FD-SOI) process that is inherently radiation tolerant, reducing single event effects (SEE). For additional assurance our FPGAs have built-in memory error detection and correction tailored to the needs of modern space missions.
Purpose-built for space, Certus/Pro-NX-RT FPGAs have SnPb solder ball leads and are built from single, traceable wafer lots that have passed radiation acceptance testing. As a specialized space electronics supplier, all our devices have long-term supply assurance.
SWaP-C performance is critical for space missions. Certus/Pro-NX-RT FPGAs are the smallest, lightest, most power-efficient processing devices available for space flight. Full-featured for design flexibility, and lower device cost, make systems powered by Certus/Pro-NX-RT FPGAs the right choice.
With built-in mixed-signal analog features and extensive on-chip memory for low-latency processing, you can distribute intelligence across your system. For greater design maneuverability, our Certus/Pro-NX-RT FPGAs have on-die comparators and security features for real-time telemetry and mission integrity.
As space missions pivot towards distributed architectures, they are leveraging the performance and interoperability of commercially developed, open standards-based technologies. From sensor processing to data translation, standards-based interfaces build in scalable performance, while reducing design complexity.
Certus/Pro-NX-RT FPGAs are supported by our ecosystem of SWaP-optimized, radiation-assured peripheral devices. By using high-performance flight-grade memory, power management, logic, interconnect and other complimentary devices from a single source, you can design faster with lower risk.
Our fault-tolerant GR library (GRLIB) seamlessly integrates with Lattice’s Propel library and Radiant debug and design tools to offer an easy, intuitive and versatile design experience. Combined, these IPs deliver a holistic design environment for space engineers seeking to quickly create high-performance, high-reliability space processing solutions.
As space experts, we recognize the extra requirements needed for flight. Our radiation and FPGA specialists will guide you through the design process from start to finish. Acting as seamless extensions to your in-house capabilities, our experts will share component integration techniques and design approaches that are optimized for reliability and performance.
