TID effects imply that one incident irradiation causes the ionizing of matter and it appears charge in places where it should not. TNID effects are motivated by the displacement of the atoms of the crystalline lattice from their balance sites.
Alter Technology is the coordinated procurement agency for all the electronic components on-board providing engineering, testing and logistics services helping to the The European Space Agency (ESA) in the new mission with the PLAnetary Transits and Oscillations of stars (PLATO); which has the goal to detect terrestrial exoplanets in the habitable zone of solar-type stars and characterizing their bulk properties from 2024 onwardsplato.
This webinar will go over some of the challenges of selecting EEE components for lower-cost space missions. It will present the continuing need for radiation tolerance in the components, as well as quality needs. The Renesas line of Radiation-Tolerant and Radiation-Hardened Plastic products will also be discussed, including qualification, screening and assurance testing flows.
The aim of the external inspection of coated PCA is to determine if all the surfaces and devices are adequately covered. In order to make easy such inspection, fluorescing agents can be added to the polymeric formulation, which shows a blue glow when the PCA is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light.
“Managing space parts procurement and parts engineering services purely as a cost center is an outdated mindset that can have drastic repercussions, ranging from the inability to attract the right talent to discouraging the use of critical and expensive service providers.
Life test is an electrical stress test that typically employs voltage and/or temperature to accelerate the appearance of wear-out reliability failures in a device. The objective of life testing is to evaluate whether failures caused by wear-out are likely to occur during the product lifetime and thus to estimate compliance of the device with the long-term reliability requirements
