NASHUA, N.H. - Military + Aerospace Electronics cordially invites you to our 21 February webinar to learn more about how artificial intelligence- (AI)-based onboard processing is crucial for edge computing satellites. This event is sponsored by Infineon Technologies in El Segundo, Calif.
Reduced bandwidth, faster decision-making, improved security, enhanced autonomy, and scalability are a few reasons why AI-based onboard processing is crucial for edge computing satellites. Thanks to technological advances, we see the rise of satellite edge computing where highly computational satellites bring processing power closer to the data source. With this real-time processing, only relevant data is transmitted back to Earth, reducing latency and improving response times.
New edge computing satellite architectures use the latest FPGAs. Although FPGAs are more power hungry than their comparable microprocessors, the ability to easily reconfigure FPGAs once a satellite is flying make them the preferred choice. After all, satellites are inherently power-limited and radiation exposed: the same power architectures that work for ground systems don’t translate well into edge computing satellites.
Expert presenters include Wibawa Chou, technical marketing director at IR HiRel, and Dr. Helmut Puchner, VP fellow of aerospace and defense at Infineon Memory Solutions.
Chou received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from Ohio State University in 1994 and 1997, respectively. With Infineon Technologies since 2001, he has over 20 years of experience in power electronic design and applications.
Puchner earned his M.S. and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Vienna Technical University, Austria in 1992 and 1996, respectively. Since 2002, he worked at Cypress Semiconductor until its acquisition by Infineon Technologies in 2020.
