DLA grants QML Q/Q+ qualification to Cobham's UT32M0R500 microcontroller

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado. Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions' (Cobham) UT32M0R500 Arm Cortex-M0+ 32-bit processor completed the qualification process and received Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Qualified Manufacturer’s List (QML) Q and Q+ qualification.

QML Q/Q+ qualification assure customers the UT32M0R500 rad-tolerant microcontroller has been through most rigorous DLA tests required, Cobham officials explain. The UT32M0R500 microcontroller integrates two independent CAN 2.0B controllers, mission read/write flash memory, and system on a chip functionality. The UT32M0R500 is designed with the industry standard ARM technology and comes with development and debug tools.

“In today’s satellite market, the architecture is built around expensive FPGAs, ASICs, and discrete components for intra-satellite communications, control and telemetry,” sats Kevin Jackson, General Manager, Cobham Semiconductor and Space Solutions. “This is driving the market for lower cost and integrated solutions that can be distributed throughout the satellite. The UT32M0R500 is a small foot print, 14.5 x 14.5mm size, RadTolerant, multi-purpose microcontroller designed for ease of implementation. The ARM process supports power development and debug tools, enables faster time to flight and can be quickly customized for customer specific applications.”
