With the rapid development of nanosatellite industry, adaptive and ultra-small-scale power management system is demanded for maintenance and sustainable use of space power supply. Radiation-tolerant System-on-Chip (SoC) technology has been recognized as a promising solution but challenges still exist. In this paper, we present a comprehensive architectural design of SoC power solution for nanosatellite applications including space-level 16-bit processor, 8-channel ADC, precision amplifiers, interface units etc. Based on antiradiation requirements, we customize three application scenarios for nanosatellite. It comprises reconfigurable architecture, fault tolerance strategy and in-orbit calibration strategy. The space-level processor named FC-4065 uses these anti-irradiation solutions after Total Ionizing Dose (TID) and Single Event Upset (SEU) tests. Then, by exsiting radiation-tolerant SoC platform, optimized nanosatellite power conditioning procedures are proposed. The modularized power management system is composed of Main Error Amplifier (MEA) IP, Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) IP, Battery Balancing (BB) IP, S3R IP and other soft IP cores. This microsystem can monitor and control the entire nanosatellite power modules without manual operations. Finally, TID trial is carried out in the Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics in China. Practical stability and accuracy of SoC architectures are proven, and suggestions for future nanosatellite power development are discussed based on the spaceflight missions.
