COTS Platform for the Development of Re-Configurable Processing in Aerospace Systems

Current and future developments of field programmable gate array (FPGA) devices indicate that all of the processing needs for Aerospace Systems can be met by using these devices.

This paper will outline the latest COTS FPGA based modular platform for the development of aerospace processing systems. This DIME II system is engineered to take advantage of the Xilinx Virtex II series of FPGAs. Features of the platform particularly useful to the Aerospace designer include:

A multi-purpose architecture will also be proposed to provide performance, flexibility and high reliability necessary for a real time Avionic system that is based on point-to-point communications rather than a bus based, highly contentious, configuration.
