New SPARC processor

A few days ago there was an announcement of a new SPARC processor. No, not the 1.6 GHz N2. There was a second announcement. Atmel announced the Atmel AT697F AT697F Fully Radiation-Hardened Processor. It’s SPARCv8 compatible proc for usage in space where you have to live with high radiation levels. This CPU was testesd with a dose up to 300 Krad. So: SPARC is everywhere … even high above your heads ;)
