First Aerospace-qualified Baseless Power Module Family Improves Aircraft Electrical System Efficiency - Press ReleaseAugust 11, 2021
CHANDLER, Ariz., August 3, 2021 – In the race to reduce aircraft emissions, developers increasingly are moving toward more efficient designs including electrical systems that replace today’s pneumatics and hydraulics powering everything from on-board alternators to actuators and Auxiliary Power Units (APUs). To enable next-generation aircraft electrical systems, new power conversion technology is required. Microchip Technology Inc. today announced its development with Clean Sky, a joint European Commission (EC) and industry consortium, of the first aerospace-qualified baseless power modules enabling higher-efficiency, lighter and more compact power conversion and motor drive systems.
CHANDLER, Ariz. Microchip Technology announced the availability of the first radiation-tolerant FPGA [field-programmable gate array] that has been qualified to JEDEC standards in a plastic package, which the company says is aimed at developers of small-satellite constellations and other space systems that call for high reliability and radiation protection.
CHANDLER, Ariz. Microchip Technology Inc. has announced the qualification of its M6 MRH25N12U3 radiation-hardened, metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) for commercial aerospace and defense space applications.
CHANDLER, Ariz. Microchip Technology Inc. announced its new VSC8540/41ET Gigabit Ethernet PHY RMII / RGMII Transceiver – a Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS)-based device upgraded for avionics and military applications.
CHANDLER, Ariz. Microchip Technology Inc. announced the release of a major software update for its BlueSky GNSS Firewall product, designed to provide a higher level of resiliency against GPS vulnerabilities for systems dependent on GPS signal reception.
Organizations purchasing satellites are on a perpetual quest to extract ever-increasing value from space assets: We see operators of imaging satellites seeking higher image resolution, faster frame rates, finer channel resolution, and more channels to enable advanced multispectral and hyperspectral imaging.
