How do you change a paradigm in space flight computers? In 2000, when scientists and engineers working on the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer -02 (AMS-02) first began searching for a space rated single board computer capable of processing over 17 Gbits/sec of measured high energy physics particles, they found that the existing space rated computer systems were woefully inadequate to…
