Ultimate Reliability with TTTech's Space Products
TTTech offers space products for human space flight, launchers, other space vehicles and related test facilities. The offering includes chip IP cores, ASIC development, development switches, network interface cards (end systems) and configuration tools (development tools).
With space products from TTTech customers benefit from scalable and modular architectures, determinism, secure partitioning, built-in scalable fault-tolerance, increased bandwidth, a single network fully compliant with standard Ethernet, fault-tolerant distributed clock synchronization and cost-competitive cross-industry technology.
TTTech’s space products have been deployed by NASA with TTEthernet functioning as the backbone of the NASA Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV). Currently a lot of work is also being carried out in Europe with the objective to demonstrate the applicability of Integrated Modular Avionics and advanced embedded computing concepts to all kinds of space vehicles as well as to develop a new family of European TTEthernet solutions for space applications.
TTTech was also involved in the OBC-SA Project, funded by the German Aerospace and Space Agency (DLR). TTTech was responsible for the networking sub-project “Deterministic Real-Time Ethernet for Space Computing Platforms”. Within this sub-project, Deterministic Ethernet technology was further developed to target the specific requirements for future space applications in a European context.
