More FPGAs on Mars

The Phoenix Mars lander is scheduled to be on the surface of Mars this weekend, on Sunday. At least one Actel FPGA is on board, handling pressure and temperature data processing.

Note that Actel and Xilinx FPGAs are already rolling around on Mars, in the Spirit and Opportunity rovers.

Details of the Phoenix lander and its gadgets can be found on the JPL Mars Page.
