AR2SEC: HIGH PERFORMANCE ARCHITECTURES FOR CRITICAL SECTORS

The AR2SEC project (ARquitecturas de alto Rendimiento para SECtores Críticos) has been selected by CDTI (Spanish Center for Technological Development and Innovation) within the “Missions of Science and Innovation 2023” program linked to the national PERTE of microelectronics and semiconductors. The project embarks on a groundbreaking venture to revolutionize processing

Software virtualization with XtratuM Hypervisor to boost JUICE mission

On Friday 14th April, the European Space Agency (ESA) launched JUICE (JUpiter ICy moons Explorer) mission, a groundbreaking research project aimed at exploring Jupiter’s icy moons with an estimated duration of seven years. JUICE will be one of the most comprehensive studies of Jupiter’s moons undertaken, generating significant scientific discoveries,
The increasing importance of virtualization techniques

The increasing importance of virtualization techniques

The hardware technology of embedded real-time systems has evolved towards very powerful, reliable and cheap multicore platforms. This trend has increased the interest for software architectures in which multiple applications share a multicore platform as an optimal solution for embedded real-time systems. The interest in multicore platforms has been fueled
OneWeb achieves half the size of its constellation with XtratuM hypervisor at the core of its satellites

OneWeb achieves half the size of its constellation with XtratuM hypervisor at the core of its satellites

The increasing importance of time and space partitioning was a key consideration for OneWeb when choosing XtratuM Hypervisor. On October 14th, OneWeb launched its 11th batch of satellites and reached the halfway point of its planned constellation with 358 satellites orbiting. OneWeb is positioning as one of the main Internet providers from space in the
Time and Space partitioning for the next embedded Linux distribution for the space domain

Time and Space partitioning for the next embedded Linux distribution for the space domain

Have you ever wondered about the complexity of the software being used on-board satellites? Which operating systems the on-board computers use? How does the New Space approach change the scenario? Nowadays, Linux is starting to get used in space applications and the availability of this operating system in satellites is becoming a
fentISS colaboration with Selene

XtratuM Hypervisor arrives to the H2020 Project SELENE

Since October 2019, fentISS leads the H2020 project De-RISC, a promising work which is preparing a full hardware-software platform based on RISC-V for the space domain, which can also be used in other markets such as aviation. fentISS’ involvement in De-RISC is being more than acceptable and the consortium has
