Higher volume satellite constellations in low Earth orbit are driving a requirement for increasingly cost effective components. TT Electronics’ New Space Electronics (http://www.ttelectronics.com/new-space-electronics) offers a solution that delivers reduced screening but is fully traceable, with proven space grade heritage.
Low Earth orbit satellites are increasingly popular for enabling improved and more localised Earth observation, surveillance and communication.
Whilst deep space exploration demands component survivability for 20 years or more in the harshest of environments, the higher volume satellite constellations (http://www.ttelectronics.com/en/news-and-media/press-releases/multi-chip-arrays-pave-the-way-for-newspace-projects) in low Earth orbit are driving a requirement for cost effective components destined for operational use over just three to four years in more benign conditions.
As part of mission licensing, the space agencies that sanction the launches need to know the components will work after this time to ensure appropriate deorbiting and decommissioning of the satellites, and that no space debris is left in the atmosphere. This is where TT Electronics’ New Space Electronics comes in as a solution that delivers cost effective screening using fully traceable and space proven die.
TT Electronics’ New Space Electronics range offers recognisable discrete components alongside standard multi-chip array (http://www.ttelectronics.com/semiconductors/discrete-semiconductors/multi-chip-arrays) configurations.
