The demand on digital signal processing has been growing continuously driven by the increased data array size and sophisticated algorithms. The existing solutions using FPGA and/or ASIC have its advantages and drawbacks. The newly developed FPOA technology provides a flexible and effective programmable solution to meet the computation requirements and greatly reduces the schedule on development. This paper describes a flexible implementation of a complete digital signal processing on FPOA. An example space satellite application has been built and demonstrated on hardware.
