The Meteor Single Board Computer (SBC) has the performance that modern applications need while providing the reliability required for the space environment in a low power cPCI form factor. Meteor uses a radiation-tolerant E2V MPC8548-based processor that includes a mature software development environment combined with a VxWorks board support package (BSP).
Three categories of SBCs are available including lab-based software development units, engineering development units and flight units. Honeywell also has a Meteor Simics model available for software development on a cost-effective virtual platform. Hardware testing and radiation characterization has been performed on all critical components.
As a leader in space electronics products and on-board computing, Honeywell has supplied more than 200 space computers with a 100% on-orbit success rate.
