System-on-Chip (SoC) for Telecommand System Design
The emerging developments in semiconductor technology have made possible to design entire system onto a single chip, commonly known as System-On-Chip (SoC). The increases in Space System's capabilities kindled by the On-board data processing capabilities can be overcome by optimizing the SoCs to provide cost effective, high performance, and reliable data. This is achieved by embedding pre-designed functions into a single SoC, which utilizes specialized reusable core (IP cores) architecture into complex chip. The implementations have been done using XILINX FPGA platform and the functionality of the system is verified using Modelsim simulation. The presented SoC design operates with the frequency of 143.74 MHz and it consumes 2056 mw power.
