Responsible for inventions from wireless headphones to portable computers, space exploration has long been a field responsible for driving significant technological innovation. Today, NASA is fervently continuing this trend as the organization prepares for future missions to the moon and beyond.
One of the exciting new technologies in NASA’s queue is their High-Performance Spaceflight Computer (HPSC) project. Supporting that effort, earlier this week, SiFive announced being selected by NASA to provide its RISC-V core in NASA’s HPSC.
In this article, we’ll look at the SiFive NASA news, examine NASA’s goal for the HPSC, and highlight another HPSC awarded by NASA to Microchip Technology last month.
