Featured applications

Navigate through interactive block diagrams to find products and reference designs tailored to support the longevity and dependability of your next mission. Design smarter, more energy efficient systems that are optimized against harsh environmental conditions. Whether you are designing for deep space travel, low earth orbit or anywhere in between, take your design to new heights with us.

Command & data handling (C&DH)

Integrated circuits and reference designs for command and data handling systems, complete with schematics, test data and design files:

Communications payload

Integrated circuits and reference designs for communications payload systems, complete with schematics, test data and design files:

Optical imaging payload

Imaging satellites continuously monitor the planet for various tasks such as weather, mapping, or surveillance.

Radar imaging payload

Our space qualified integrated circuits and reference designs help you create next-generation radar payloads to monitor surface conditions from space with maximum performance.

Satellite electrical power system (EPS)

Satellites harness power from solar panels to power the spacecraft. This high voltage supply needs to be stored and converted for all the on board electronics.
