Abstract:

This report covers the period of performance of the FPGA Mission Assurance Center FMAC Cooperative Agreement at the University of New Mexico UNM. The organization has changed its name from the FMAC to the Configurable Space Microsystems Innovations and Applications Center COSMIAC to better reflect the work that is being accomplished. The main emphasis of this work was to develop and implement new principles related to reconfigurable electronics as applied to the space environment. Issues such as radiation hardening, complexity, reliability and Space Plug-n-Play are presented and discussed in detail. This report includes theory, analysis, design and implementation of several reconfigurable devices that can be used on a space vehicle or platform. Several recommendations and future ideas are presented and discussed in detail.
