Vorago Rad-hard OBC / C&DH Avionics Kit
The Vorago RH-OBC-1 is an On Board Computer (OBC) / Command & Data Handling (C&DH) avionics board using radiation-hardened components and radiation effects fault-tolerant design methodology. The board is based on a VORAGO Technologies VA10820 ARM® Cortex®-M0 microcontroller (MCU) and includes rad-hard Cypress FRAM, rad-hard Intersil power management devices and a rad-hard Cobham 14-bit Analog-to-digital convertor. Radiation-mitigating protection circuits are incorporated to protect commercial grade CAN and USB-to-UART devices.
The RH-OBC is designed to be compatible with the Pumpkin 104-pin CubeSat Bus. The RH-OBC is a rad-hard replacement for Pumpkin's non-rad-hard Motherboard (MB) + Pluggable Processor Modules (PPM); it implements a rad-hard subset of the subsystems typically found on an MB+PPM.
