The Mongoose-V is a single chip rad-hard microprocessor with integrated cache memory and integrated peripheral functions. The Mongoose-V can be used to form a complete rad-hard computer by the straight-forward addition of local memory and system-specific interface logic. The Mongoose-V implements the MIPS R3000 instruction set including the MIPS floating point hardware. On-chip caches provide high bandwidth memory access to keep the CPU operating efficiently. The data cache size is 2 KB and the instruction cache size is 4 KB.
