1st Off-the-Shelf Quad-Core LEON 4FT® 3U SpaceVPX SBC!

Bohemia, New York (September 2019) – Data Device Corporation (DDC) announces that our space-proven Single Board Computer (SBC) product line now includes a compact, high performance (1700 DMIPS, 90 Linpack MFLOPS) SWaP (size, weight and power) optimized 3U SpaceVPX, offering many memory and I/O options, including: (8) General purpose SpaceWire ports (up to 200 Mbps each), (1) SpW debug port, (2) UART (RS-422 or LVDS), (2) CANbus, (2) I2C, (1) SPI, GPIO, (1) 1553 (requires external PHY), and Ethernet.

The SCS3740 is the first off-the-shelf Quad Core LEON 4FT 3U SpaceVPX SBC and is SWaP optimized in a compact form factor – weighing 550 grams, with a low power consumption of only 5 Watts. The highly integrated SoC (system on a chip) LEON quad-core processor reduces overall parts count, enabling low power consumption and high performance, up to 1700 DMIPS, in a compact 3U SpaceVPX. Additionally, the many I/O options provided offer flexibility to match a wide range of mission requirements.

With excellent radiation performance for total ionizing dose (TID > 100krad(Si)) and Single Event Effects (1 upset in 150 years (GEO)), the SCS3740 is built on DDC's established pedigree of TRL-9 single board computers, and utilizes DDC’s flight proven rad-hard Sp-COTSTM (Space Commercial Off-the-Shelf) memories, including 32GB of error corrected NAND Flash, 128MB SDRAM, and 4MB EEPROM. Since the inception of our Space Microelectronics group, more than 20 years ago, our rad-hard Sp-COTSTM and SBC products have experienced zero failures in space!

Benefits include:

  • SWaP Optimized Performance
    • Highly integrated SoC (system on a chip) LEON quad-core processor reduces overall parts count and power
    • Integrated SpaceWire router supports SpaceVPX Control Plane
    • I2C supports SpaceVPX Utility Plane
  • High Reliability
    • Built on DDC's established pedigree of TRL-9 single board computers, and utilizes DDC’s flight proven rad-hard Sp-COTSTM memory products
  • Flexibility & Ease-of-Use
    • Many I/O options – provides flexibility to match a wide range of mission requirements
    • Development Kit available
    • Board support package (BSP) available
    • Real-time operating system support: Wind River®, VxWorks® and RTEMS

"The SCS3740 allows DDC to offer significant processing and I/O capabilities without requiring significant power or space from the host platform, hitting a sweet spot for rad-hard system integrators that need to minimize SWaP." said Dan Veenstra, Business Unit Manager for the Space Microelectronics Group.
