Coherent Logix heralds their advanced space processor.
JULY 27, 2023
Coherent Logix™ has launched the firm’s most advanced space processor, HyperX Midnight. Coherent Logix has been serving the Space 2.0 and Defense markets for 15 years. In these markets, high-performance computing (HPC) with low power draw and radiation hardening is the absolute key to success.
With the release of HyperX Midnight, Coherent Logix now offers as much as 4x the computing throughput, half the power consumption and a 40 percent lower price point when compared to other leading, radiation-hardened, FPGAs. This high-performance, low SWaP (Size, Weight, and Power) combination is a game-changer for Space 2.0 companies and military applications, enabling far greater capabilities to be packaged in smaller satellite buss configurations, dramatically lowering launch costs and accelerating industry growth.
In keeping with Coherent Logix’ mission of “Redefining Hardware as Software™,” HyperX Midnight also brings software-defined operations, C-programmability and the latest in software simulation and debugging tools to the Space 2.0 community. Coherent Logix’ HyperX Studio design suite enables 4x faster software development cycles as compared to the rigors of developing for FPGAs and offer full, on-orbit re-programmability, meaning improvements can continue long after launch.
The HyperX family of System-on-Chip (SoC) includes processors for terrestrial markets as well, with the identical computing, efficiency, and programmability features. HyperX SoCs support market solutions across several sectors, including defense, space, consumer electronics, 5G mobile infrastructure, video/broadcast infrastructure, machine vision, sensor processing and Cyber-AI.
“With our HyperX Midnight System-on-Chip, we are delivering definitive advantages in launch cost, time-to-market, and spacecraft functionality to our space and military customers.” — Walt Gall, CEO, Coherent Logix.
