Developed in the framework of Next Generation Processors (NGP) for communications payloads, this integrated payload controller and processing unit provides high processing performance and standard interfaces to spacecraft and payload subsystems. The typical applications include control of analogue RF equipment, control of on-board fine granularity channel switching and secure of TM/TC channels by encryption.
Payload Control Processor MDPA (Multi-DSP/ µProcessor Architecture) featuring:
Flexible Data Processor (Next Generation) in development for communication channel regeneration
MDPA Payload Controller will be qualified under ESA contract beginning of 2008
