When developing mission-critical space applications such as low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites or equipment designed for Mars missions, there are special considerations you must make if you will be operating your RF circuits in a vacuum. This is because when the pressure in the vacuum is below 10-2 Torr, a potentially catastrophic phenomenon in RF circuits called multipaction is possible.

basics in mind: three sources of radiation cause three different types of effects on a device. The three sources are the Van Allen belts, where protons and electrons are trapped around the Earth in its magnetic field lines. The second radiation source is the Sun, which continuously emits energetic particles toward the Earth. The third source of particles is galactic cosmic rays. These are made up of ions ranging from a simple proton to uranium.
New acquisition will allow us to increase our current Environmental capabilities and offer the best price and delivery time in the market for the thermal treatment of your products, PCBs, as part of the Product Validation according to most of the industry standards ECSS-Q-ST-70-08C, ECSS-Q-ST-70-38C, JESD22-104, IEC 61646 10.11, IEC 60068-3-5…
Supercapacitors also called electrochemical double layer capacitors are energy storage devices storing a high volume of electric energy in the double layer between a high surface area electrode and an electrolyte. As compared to batteries no chemical reactions should occur at the electrodes.
Electronic Components Thermal shock testing is performed to determine the ability of parts to function properly in an environment with sudden extreme changes in temperature. It is also used for accelerated testing during product evaluation and qualification process.
