Abstract: Future small and micro-missions, such as Mars Scouts and Deep Space probes, require a new look at highly integrated, re-configurable, low power avionics. This paper will present our plans for developing a scalable, configurable, and highly integrated 32-bit embedded platform capable of implementing computationally intensive signal processing and control algorithms in space flight instruments and systems. This platform is designed to service the need of both small and large spacecraft and planetary rovers that will operate within moderate radiation environments. Some of the key characteristics of this platform are its small size, low power, high performance, and flexibility. This estimated 10 fold reduction in both size and power over state-of-the-art processing platforms will enable this new product to act as the core of a low-cost mobility system for a wide range of missions.
