A Radiation-Tolerant Low-Power Transceiver Design for Reconfigurable Communications and Navigation Applications

Abstract

This paper describes the ongoing development of a radiation-tolerant version of ITT Industries’ Low-Power Transceiver (LPT). The LPT is a compact, flexible device that can be configured to perform custom communications and navigation functions in terrestrial, airborne, and space applications. The radiation-tolerant version of the LPT maintains most of the LPT’s existing functionality and reprogrammability. This paper emphasizes the development of the radiation-tolerant digital modules, which contain reprogrammable FPGA and DSP devices, and their application to future space applications.
