Abstract

The goal of the TREMOR team was to design a Triple Modular Redundant Flight Computer for WPI's PANSAT Nanosatellite. The flight computer had to be able to withstand Single Event Upsets (SEUs) due to elevated levels of radiation in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). The current status of TREMOR is a completed interface design, along with completed memory, input/output, central processing units, and the TREMOR TMR system. TREMOR is slated to be completed by January 2005.
