The CubeComputer is a general purpose onboard computer intended for use on nanosatellites. It was designed from the ground up to be fully compatible with the CubeSat standard as well as other CubeSat system from ISIS, Pumpkin, ClydeSpace and other ESL products. The OBC is built around an ARM Cortex-M3based MCU which delivers high performance at very low power. To protect the OBC against radiation effects such as SEUs and SELs, fault tolerant techniques have been implemented


  • Application: Onboard Computer suitable for nanosatellite C&DH, TT&C, mass storage and ADCS
  • PC/104 form factor, compatible with CubeSat standard
  • Monitoring:
    • Supply voltage monitoring
    • Current monitoring (reactive to lactchups)
    • On-board temperature sensor
    • 8 x 12-bit A/D (4 used for monitoring)
  • Communication:
    • 2 x I2C interface with multi-master capabilities
