%X The first Brazilian microsatellite will be launched at the
middle of 1998. The on\-board computer, named Trisputer,
will play a major part in the mission, since it will perform
essential on\-board functions, such, as guidance, control of
the on\-board instrumentation, telemetry/telecommand, and
control of some on\-board scientific experiments. The
Trisputer is a fault\-tolerant multiprocessor computer with
a high reliability, when compared to such systems as TMR,
and Duplex. This paper describes the conception and
implementation of the hardware of this computer, as well as
it shows its reliability model.
