Coherent Logix launches ‘HyperX: Midnight, world’s most advanced space processor

Coherent Logix™, a world leader in high-performance, low-power Systems-on-Chip (SoCs) and advanced development tools, today announced the launch of HyperX: Midnight, the company’s fourth generation HyperX™ SoC for the Space 2.0 market.

Coherent Logix will officially launch HyperX: Midnight at SATELLITE 2023 at Booth 2638 from March 14-16 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. Regarded as the most important annual satellite and space event in the world, keynote presenters at SATELLITE 2023 include Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and former Vice President Mike Pence.

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, enabling far greater capabilities to be packaged in smaller satellite buss 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.

“The next space race is here for both commercial and government operators. With our HyperX: Midnight SoCs, we are delivering decisive advantages in launch cost, time-to-market, and spacecraft functionality to our customers,” said Walt Gall, Coherent Logix Co-CEO.

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

“Satellite/terrestrial convergence is a key theme in the industry,” Gall said. “With the addition of HyperX: Midnight, we enable development of software-defined solutions for security, communications, AI, and imaging that serve both Space 2.0 and terrestrial interests in one common effort. That is just one more example of how HyperX is Ready for Life at the Edge™.”
