On-Board Recorder (OBR)

Brief Description

The On-Board Recorder (OBR) provides high-speed and high-density storage for the mission payload data, using non-volatile NAND Flash Memory.

High-Speed Serial (HSS) interfaces to the Payload and Transmitter are implemented using transceivers of Xilinx 7-series FPGA. TC/TM for the module is supported over CAN bus, which also supports reception of spacecraft attitude data to store together with mission payload data in order to optimise ground processing.

Key Features
  • 256 GBytes storage using SLC NAND Flash Memory
  • Read/Write speeds up to 5 Gbps
  • Support for multiple protocols for HSS interfaces
  • Tolerant to Single Event Effects (SEE) in operation and storage
  • Peak Power consumption < 12 watts @ 12V
  • Design for > 5 years in LEO
    • TRL-8
  • Ruggedised VITA46 compliant enclosure for thermal performance and EMI reduction
  • Customised VPX chassis and backplane available per selected configuration
  • International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) free components
