The CAVU FG-1 is a state-of-the-art CubeSat satellite board, specially designed for capturing high-quality images from a CameraLink camera in a CubeSat satellite. This device embodies the latest advancements in space technology, ensuring optimal performance even in the harsh conditions of space.

The FG-1 is built to withstand the rigors of space travel, providing consistent performance throughout its lifespan. It operates efficiently within a temperature range of -40 to 85 degrees Celsius and adheres to shock and random vibration.  At the heart of the FG-1 lies the Actel/Microsemi Flash-based FPGA, immune to Single Event Upsets (SEUs). It supports Power over CameraLink (PoCL) with an onboard On/OFF switch and CameraLink UART configurations. The FG-1 is capable of handling complex computations and data processing tasks, making it an invaluable asset for any CubeSat mission.
