ESA Awards Contract to CAES for System-on-Chip Development as Part of ARTES Competitiveness & Growth Program

New contract advances CAES Gaisler product portfolio to include a 16-core RISC-V platform that will enable the next generation of space-grade fault- and radiation-tolerant microprocessors.

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, DECEMBER 22, 2021 (CAES PR) – CAES, a leader in advanced mission-critical electronics, has been awarded a contract with the European Space Agency (ESA) to develop a fault- and radiation-tolerant system-on-chip. Funded by the Swedish National Space Agency, the project will improve performance and power efficiency in satellite and spacecraft applications by developing a 16-core, space-hardened microprocessor based on the open RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA).
