Our Technology

Xiphos’ signature technology is a series of miniature processing boards called Q-cards. They use logic-software hybrid computation to perform complex processing tasks at a small fraction of the power and weight of conventional processors.

Q-cards are generally used in conjunction with application-specific daughterboards which provide a broad range of interfacing options and application-specific.


The Q7 is the latest in the Xiphos line of spaceflight-ready miniature processing boards. It retains the small form factor, low mass and power consumption of its predecessors, but provides a significant increase in CPU performance and many other features.
