Metal cases add value in space electronics

Metal cases add value in space electronics
Does the design of space electronics have room for traditional metal case devices? As a proven packaging option, the appeal of compliance and reliability has designers taking a new look at heritage technology. Even as hermetic devices have been popular design choices over the last few decades, today designers are revisiting Transistor Outline (TO) JEDEC packages that were once the norm for space electronics.

New VPX board optimises high speed optical connectivity

New VPX board optimises high speed optical connectivity
Pentek has introduced the newest member of the Jade family of high performance 3U VPX boards. The Model 54851 is based on the Xilinx Kintex Ultrascale FPGA and features two 500MHz 12-bit A/Ds with two programmable multiband Digital Down Converters (DDCs) and one Digital Upconverter (DUC) with two 800MHz 16-bit D/As. The 54851 is the first board utilising this new 3U VPX architecture with advanced wideband I/O options.

Helping Collins Aerospace future-proof avionics systems

Helping Collins Aerospace future-proof avionics systems
Future airspace will be filled with drones, commercial aircraft, helicopters, and more. Several prototypes are currently targeting urban air mobility solutions such as air taxis, or revolutionary aircraft models, such as next-generation commercial supersonic aircraft. Add to this autonomous swarm technologies, such as manned-unmanned teaming, and systems for future vertical lift and it’s clear that the technology wave coming to any aerospace manufacturer today can easily become overwhelming. Guest blog from Wind River.

Flexible shaft manufacturer provides custom design expertise

Flexible shaft manufacturer provides custom design expertise
S.S. White Technologies highlights bespoke flexible shaft solutions for aerospace applications. Flexible shafts transmit rotary motion much like a solid shaft, but can be routed over, under and around obstacles where a solid shaft cannot be used. Flexible shafts are used in a variety of applications, including many capacities in aerospace, such as in Thrust Reverser Actuation Systems (TRAS), flap and slat systems, variable bleed valves, jet afterburner nozzle control systems, cargo door actuation systems, and valve override.
