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.
Smoltek’s inventions facilitate such integration of extremely low-profile solid state energy storage devices such as CNF-MIM capacitors, closer to the connection points and power rails of the active chips.
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.
In modern satellites, the secondary power conditioning unit must supply a wide variety of low voltages, which are required by the payload modules, precisely and without fluctuations even at severe load variations.
