Technical Poster Session 2: Command & Data Handling

Location

Utah State University, Logan, UT

Abstract

Argotec HACK OBC offers unprecedent flexibility thanks to its design developed from scratch to be modular and easily reconfigurable.

Different standard modules, based on both state-of-the-art SoCs and FPGAs, can be assembled without the need of external harness to face a wide variety of applications, from spacecraft management to hardware acceleration. The design leverages a mix of rad-hard, defense-grade and automotive components carefully selected to enable the execution of demanding edge-computing tasks while ensuring a reliability level significantly higher than standard CubeSat avionics. Each HACK module is designed to be powered by a single +5V DC rail and has standardized thermal and mechanical interfaces, allowing the installation both as single unit or as part of a complex OBC subsystem. The standard configuration, which includes one Core Board and one aXelerator Module, has a volume of about 0.5U and offers unmatched performance and interfaces.
