High-quality, reliable electronic components are a necessity for space applications. After all, when launching mission-critical equipment and people into space, there is absolutely no room for failure.
The use of thin film, a layer of material used to fabricate electronic components beginning at fractions of a nanometer, for SMT microstrip filters can dramatically reduce their size and increase performance.
Fully digital beamforming can greatly benefit emerging military applications, especially in electronic warfare, as it provides advantages over large-scale active electronically scanned arrays (AESAs) at higher operational frequencies.
Launching mission-critical equipment into space is a high-stakes endeavor requiring infallibility. Knowles Precision Devices has been launching components into space with precision and expertise for more than four decades.
