Resistors assembled to a PCB have been submitted to the ECSS verification program. Metallographic analysis allows us to check the status of such devices after performing the environmental tests (Vibration & Thermal Cycling).
For New Space applications AXTAL offers as special service the sourcing and/or up-screening of commercial quartz crystal units with proven quality level to so-called "Space-COTS Crystals" (SCC) increasing the range of available package styles
Produced and tested on the same line as Q-tech most stringent space qualified oscillators, the parts proposed for LEO applications, QT780 SERIES, QT723 SERIES, QT735 SERIES are made with the same Q-Tech quality and reliability
BGA device assembled to a PCB has been submitted to the ECSS verification programme following the guideline defined in the ECSS standard ECSS-Q-ST-70-38C. Metallographic analysis allows us to check the status of such devices after performing the environmental tests (Vibration & Thermal Cycling).
The HYPERBOLOID contact is an advanced design used in connectors having the highest standards of performance: low insertion/extraction forces, high contact life, high current ratings, high shock&vibration withstanding
Assembly process of THT or SMT onto PCBs for spacecraft applications follow well-established design requirements based on specifications prepared by ECSS (ECSS-Q-ST-70-08C & ECSS-Q-ST-70-38C), NASA and IPC (IPC-6012).
For satellite applications where failure is not an option, electronic components need to operate constantly on demand, and have to be free of failures during the lifetime of the satellite-which can be for many years. To ensure this requirement is met, the components are put through many hours of stress testing covering all thermal.
