Computing platform

A new computing platform for AAUSAT6 is needed.

The goal is to have a platform which supports

  • low power consumption and robust low performance running
  • medium power subsystem for temporarely demanding algorithms

Examples on algorithms could be

  • decoding of AIS or other protocols
  • Maximum power point tracking for en Electronic Powersupply)
  • Encoding/decoding of radio transmission packages

The low power part shall support a realtime kernel (like freertos)


The Papilio board with combined FPGA and arduino CPU looks promising.
