The RTAX components have a great history, but they are antifuse-based, which means they are one-time programmable (OTP). SRAM-based FPGAs are much more susceptible to radiation events, but the fact that they can be reprogrammed when the mission is underway is very advantageous. I'm really interested in the on-going work on radiation-tolerant SRAM-based FPGAs and design tools from the folks at Xilinx (also the tools from Mentor and Synopsys)
