The evolution of power distribution in the spacecraft goes into a modular architecture direction. Especially the secondary power distribution from the satellite bus to the modules can be made more efficient by applying modular design and standard power interfaces.
Fault Injection is an inexpensive technique that during design time, refine the design for the test fixture, improve the quality of stimuli, in order to maximize the error rate, and test the design observability.
One of the quality assurance inspections that are performed in EEE parts is external visual inspection. The applicable method for Microchip FPGAs as well as for other parts with generic specification MIL-PRF-38535, is MIL-STD-883 Method 2009.
The easiest response could be: SpaceFiber is a multi-Gbits/s, on-board network technology for spaceflight applications which complements well known SpaceWire network and both are for the satellites that, what Ethernet for us on the ground.
Developers of spacecraft electronics use radiation-tolerant (RT) field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) to create on-board systems that meet the demanding performance needs of future space missions, survive the brutal launch process and continue to operate reliably in the harsh environment of space
Microchip’s technical experts and partners will be presenting the most innovative space-related products, capabilities, and system solutions in this one-day technology forum. The attendees will see demonstrations of how the interoperation of our latest products can accelerate their development time. They´ll also gain a comprehensive understanding of how Microchip’s Sub-QML and COTS-to-RT components help address the challenges of meeting system performance and reliability goals while also saving costs.
