Coherent Logix Introduces HyperX: Midnight, New Advanced Space Processor

Coherent Logix, a manufacturer of high-performance, low-power Systems-on-Chip (SoCs) and advanced development tools has launched the new advanced space processor, HyperX: Midnight.

Coherent Logix has been serving the Space 2.0 and Defense markets for 15 years. In these markets, high-performance computing (HPC) with low power draw and radiation hardening is the absolute key to success. With the release of HyperX: Midnight, Coherent Logix now leads the market with up to four times the computing throughput, half the power consumption, and a 40 percent lower price point as compared to leading radiation-hardened FPGAs. This high-performance, low-SWaP (Size, Weight, and Power) combination is a game-changer for Space 2.0 companies and military applications, enabling far greater capabilities to be packaged in smaller satellite bus configurations, dramatically lowering launch costs and accelerating industry growth.

In keeping with Coherent Logix’ mission of “Redefining Hardware as Software™,” HyperX: Midnight also brings software-defined operations, C-programmability, and the latest in software simulation and debugging tools to the Space 2.0 community. Coherent Logix’ HyperX Studio design suite enables four times faster software development cycles as compared to the rigors of developing for FPGAs and offer full on-orbit re-programmability, so improvements can continue long after launch.

“With our HyperX: Midnight System-on-Chip, we are delivering definitive advantages in launch cost, time-to-market, and spacecraft functionality to our space and military customers”

said Walt Gall, CEO of Coherent Logix.

The HyperX family of System-on-Chip includes processors for terrestrial markets as well, with the same computing, efficiency, and programmability features. HyperX SoCs support market solutions across several sectors, including defense, space, consumer electronics, 5G mobile infrastructure, video/broadcast infrastructure, machine vision, sensor processing and Cyber-AI.
