RISC-V’s open source instruction set has attracted a lot of attention over the past few years and not just here on Earth – a team at ETH Zurich in Switzerland say they’ve developed a low power, fault-tolerant microcontroller for cubesats based on the architecture.

“One of the key challenges when operating microcontrollers in harsh environments such as space is radiation induced single event upsets (SEU) resulting in computation errors,” the team wrote in a paper published this week.
