Reduced development time allows faster deployment of systems in space. It also reduces cost of development. We are presenting how you can rapidly develop space applications by using a combination of a hardware design tool, National Instruments LabVIEW FPGA and a commercial off-the-shelf circuit board, Honeywell Responsive Digital Electronics Board. LabVIEW is a graphical programming and design language, a development environment, and a compiler that can target a variety of computing platforms, including desktop computers, microprocessors, and FPGAs. Responsive Digital Electronics Board is a ruggedized circuit board based on Xilinx Virtex 5 FPGA developed for vacuum and high vibration environments. A space version of the Responsive Digital Electronics is also available based on the Xilinx Virtex-5 QV, a radiation-hardened version of the commercial Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA. Development of the Virtex-5 QV was sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory [1]. Both commercial and space versions are supported by National Instruments LabVIEW.
