Over 2 Million Hours Flawless Space Flight Heritage

When you put a satellite into orbit – whether it’s a GEO leviathan or a constellation of CubeSats – you need the assurance of rigorously tested, radiation-hardened, technologically-advanced space electronics that provide quality and reliability in the harshest of environments.

At Space Micro, we engineer and manufacture affordable, high-performance communications, electro-optic and digital systems, including Telemetry, Tracking and Command (TT&C) transceivers, mission-data transmitters, star trackers, space situational awareness (SSA) capable space cameras, image processors, Command & Data Handling (C&DH) systems and laser communications systems.

Highly Reliable CubeSat Processors, Radios and Star Trackers

CSP: CubeSat Space Processor

CSP: CubeSat Space Processor is a small form factor, radiation-tolerant, single board computer based on Xilinx’s Zynq 7020 Software on a Chip (SoC). It features a reconfigurable I/O and up to 32 Gbit rad-tolerant NAND Flash [FM] memory.

Key Features

  • Compact Single Board Computer 
  • Radiation hardening utilizes Space Micro’s patented mitigation technologies
  • 1U CubeSat form factor 
  • Various interfaces supported
