Space technology electronic systems have evolved to meet the needs of long range performance in extreme physical and environmental situations. From launch to deep space travel, the demands can be daunting, considering that they cannot fail, and cannot be repaired. During launch from earth, the high shock and vibrations that the craft goes through can damage somewhat standard electronic components.
Omnetics' connectors: Deep space key capabilities
By Bob Stanton, Director of Technology
Omnetics’ connectors are mounted on printed circuit boards, must withstand potential sheering from the high G forces placed upon them. Since we all know that force is a product of “mass-times acceleration”, we often select connectors as well as other components to be small, lightweight and of low profile.
