Radiation-hardened microcontrollers for space and defense released by VORAGONews
October 22, 2021
AUSTIN, Texas. VORAGO Technologies introduced two new radiation-hardened microcontrollers, the Arm Cortex-M4 VA41628 and VA41629, built to provide flexibility in space-based missions for aerospace and defense.
The new product additions to VORAGO's M4 family are intended to allow customers the flexibility to upgrade from previous generations of rad-hard Arm microcontrollers with functional compatibility and a more powerful entry level M4 core, in addition to having the ability to scale up to more highly integrated M4 core options with code compatibility.
With this entry-level offering, VORAGO Technologies claims it will allow cost-sensitive programs to design-in the lower-cost part with the option of upgrading to a different Arm Cortex-M4 family member at a later date, with little to no changes in software configuration.
According to the company, the announcement of this transformational product approach also marks the ability for current high-level Arm Cortex-M4 designers to scale down with the same flexibility across multiple applications to potentially save hours in software redesign.
