Reconfigurability is a key element to extracting the most from any spacecraft or spacecraft subsystem. It allows systems to become more autonomous, maximizes their usage once deployed and delays obsolescence by allowing new uses of the spaceborne asset, often in ways not envisioned by its creators. This paper describes recent advances in non-volatile memory, reconfigurable technologies and high speed interfaces including BAE SYSTEMS' chalcogenide, which is the base of an upcoming 4 megabit C… CONTINUE READING
