Unibap's iX5100 is a SpaceCloud® computer solution for large and small spacecraft. Unibap provides a state-of-the-art, intelligent, computing solution for data-intensive space applications, including computing modules, a data storage module with up to 240 GB SSD and 64 GB eMMC micro SD card, and a customizable interface system to support payload, spacecraft and communication interfaces.

The iX5100 features a embedded, x86-compatible, AMD® G-series SOC product from the 1st, 2nd, and LX families. The SOC is paired with a powerful Microsemi® SmartFusion2™ FPGA, which provides IO extension and board supervisory management through IP core state-machines or embedded ARM® Cortex™ M3 micro-controller.

iX5 has an open mini PCI express connection where i.e. the Intel Myriad X VPU can be added for additional computing power.

Unibap core space offerings include:

  • Radiation tolerant payload computing hardware
  • Linux Driver/API & Application Software Development
  • AI algorithm development and implementation
  • Software for data distribution
