Abstract

The Dependable Multiprocessor (DM) F-cubed flight prototype developed by Morehead State University is a flexible computing platform for CubeSats. The processor cluster allows users to expand CubeSat capabilities where extensive processing tasks are required. The DM contains eight (8) Gumstix™ Overo Water processor modules, an Ethernet Switch, DM current sense/current limit/voltage cutoff/reset power management circuitry, and a variety of spacecraft interfaces for testing, debugging. All of these functions are contained in a 75 mm x 75 mm x 35 mm package, roughly 1/3 of a 1U CubeSat section. This presentation will demonstrate how the DM module can be applied to a high performance mission and how the capabilities are flexible to meet mission needs.
