Space is the final frontier for Newbury Electronics' PCBs
01 July 2019
Not content with supplying prototype PCBs for everyday designs and developments, some of Newbury Electronics recent boards are being used in the development of a space borne GPS receiver.
This is the latest in a string of projects that the company has completed for Dr Ben Kieniewicz, founder and director of European Engineering & Consultancy (EECL). The design was a preliminary run to allow EECL to test the design at a fraction of the cost of using a dedicated, high reliability manufacturer with extensive experience of space hardware production.
Dr Kieniewicz said; “We are working on several projects here at EECL. The most notable of which are a space borne RF front end for a cutting-edge GPS receiver to give a spacecraft millimetre positioning accuracy, and a novel Analog Beam Former Network for the European Space Agency. These designs typically require a degree of prototyping to get the best possible performance and having a partner that we can rely on to keep the budget on track, and who is willing and able to correct a situation if things go wrong is extremely important. We use Newbury Electronics for all the prototype runs as they are an excellent producer of quick turnaround, quality hardware.”
