Every time a component is tested in extreme temperature conditions, it becomes a challenge to design a reliable test setup. If in addition, components must be in vacuum conditions and electro-optical characterization is required at different temperatures, complexity increases exponentially.
The SuperCam calibration target (SCCT) carries a complex set of standards for imaging calibration, mineral identification and chemometric calculations or spectral references to calibrate and evaluate the health of the instrument basic.
Monitoring of JUICE Optical Fibers During Thermal Cycles Keeping the Optical Connectors at Different Stable Cryogenic Temperatures in 3-Chambers Setup
Two types of multimode fibers (50µm and 400µm) will be used for the scalar sensor of the JUICE (Jupiter Icy Moon Explorer program) magnetometer. This optical sensor will be placed at the end of a boom. These multimode fibers will transmit modulated laser light through the sensor, the light source, and the detector electronics being located within the spaceship.
Exposure to vacuum may cause changes in filling isolating materials even at room temperature conditions. HV Optocouplers are used to connect two different circuits while maintaining high electrical isolation between them.
24th Annual Components for Military & Space Electronics Virtual Conference held April 19-23, 2021 is the premier event focused on the design, reliability, and application of electronic components for use in avionics, aerospace, military, and commercial space systems.
Humidity may affect the life expectancy of a component by creating stresses on the part materials and altering its electrical properties in a way that the component reliability is significantly diminished.
Temperature Humidity Test is those performed with the aim of evaluating the properties of materials used in components and the reliability of non-hermetic packaged devices in humid environments.
