The high-reliability markets (space, aerospace, military, etc.) are changing as commercial entities are successfully venturing into space and paving the way for the future.
Higher volume satellite constellations in low earth orbit are driving a requirement for increasingly cost-effective components. TT Electronics’ New Space Electronics® team offers a solution that delivers reduced screening but fully traceable and proven space-grade heritage.
This article aims to explore what this means specifically for resistive component technology and component standards. It also explores the suitability against radiation effects in thin film resistor technology, which becomes an important factor when operating in space environments, i.e., NiCr networks vs TaN Film networks against total ionising dose radiation (TID).
