This paper presents a design for an embedded on board computer that can be used in LEO satellites based on FPGA technology. The design makes use of the multi-core concept provided by modern FPGA's through soft IP cores. The used FPGA is Xilinx V5 FX70, it includes 1 PowerPC 440 processor implemented as hardcore. The rest of processors are Microblaze processors V7.30, implemented as soft IP cores. The design includes number of soft IP cores to facilitate inter processor communication as will be… CONTINUE READING
