Initial Test Results of Namuru Dual-GNSS Space- borne Receiver
The Namuru family of Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA)-based GNSS receivers now includes a space-qualified design designated the Namuru V3.2A. This GPS L1 carrier phase receiver is suitable for low earth orbit (LEO) “cube” satellites. Actel flash-based FPGA’s are used along with latch-up detection circuitry and other standard techniques to provide resilience to the effects of radiation. The design supports multiple firmware image selection and firmware field update management.
