"Factors Affecting Interconnects in Space"
Mechanical, electrical, and optical requirements for interconnects in launch vehicles and Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) satellites.
Electronic and electrical components and their interconnects undergo extreme stress during the launch and orbit insertion of low-Earth-orbit (LEO) satellites. On LEO missions, interconnects must meet demanding requirements for vibration, electrostatic discharge, outgassing, temperature (from -270°C to 200°C), size-weight-and-power (SWAP)—and more.
What You'll Learn:
The paper examines critical factors that influence the cost and performance of interconnects in space.
- Minimizing size and weight
- Withstanding vibration, acoustic loads, and shock
- Withstanding temperature extremes
- Minimizing outgassing
- Controlling electrostatic discharge (ESD)
- Reducing electromagnetic permeability
- Controlling corrosion
How TE can help
We extend our track record of developing interconnects for space that began with Surveyor lunar landers in the 1960’s to advancing space-qualified Space VPX, VITA, NASA, ESA, and MIL-SPEC compliant products today. We can help designers meet mission objectives for launch vehicles, LEO satellites, and constellations employed in today’s new space economy.
