Hypothetically speaking, if you wanted to use a FRDM-K64 on a outer space flight what components would be most likely to fail in the environment of space ? Are there space rugedized components from NXP which could be used to replace the onboard components ? What about the PCB board itself. How would space affect the PCB ?

Hello Randy,

 

Unfortunately, we do not have any aerospace compliant MCU, the nearest one on the K-Series devices is KEA automotive MCUs. Please check link below.

 

Arm Cortex-M0+|Kinetis KEA 32-bit Automotive MCUs | NXP 

 

In addition, I recommend you to read the following article about our Power Architecture Processors that are compliant with DO-254.

Best regards,
Felipe

Something at Micro Semi's Space page might lead you in a direction:

While very dated still has some interesting things to say:
