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
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.
The Quality Assurance in EEE parts is a major aspect to take care in the procurement for EEE parts. One family of EEE parts widely used are the Operational Amplifiers which are in much different equipment’s of satellites electronics
PIND ( Particle Impact Noise Detection Test ) testing is performed in order to detect the presence of loose particles inside a device cavity.
Loose particle contamination is often caused by dirt, fibers, solder residues and other elements trapped inside the cavity during the sealing process. Loose particles can be a cause of electrical anomalies (or other physical problems) which in their turn can cause abnormal functioning of the parts and affect their reliability.
This article investigates the impedance of the three standard passive circuit components (R, L, and C) as well as the frequency response of a PCB trace. It is shown that a PCB trace can be modeled as a resonant RLC network just like the standard components and effectively constitutes the fourth circuit component whose frequency behavior directly affects the impedance of the resistors, inductors, and capacitors on a PCB.
