RTSX-SU radiation-tolerant field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are some of Microsemi's industry-leading space solutions onboard NASA's New Horizons spacecraft to support its successful exploration mission to Pluto. Other high-reliability Microsemi products on the spacecraft include power supplies, electromechanical latching relays, plus several JANS class diode and transistor discrete devices. RTSX-SU FPGAs are used in imaging cameras providing remarkable high-resolution images of Pluto, as well as in the communications systems and other avionics and payload systems.
