Reading time ( words)

CAES, a leading provider of mission critical electronics for aerospace and defense, has attained the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Qualified Manufacturers List Class Q (QML-Q) rating for its new, high-speed low voltage differential signaling (LVDS) repeater. CAES’ UT54LVDS454 quad-channel repeater has the space industry's highest throughput and features built-in cold-sparing for easy-to-implement redundancy, making it ideally suited to high-speed, high-reliability satellite data distribution applications. With this military-grade qualification, customers are assured that this new LVDS repeater can withstand the high temperatures and harsh environments of spaceflight.

“CAES is committed to offering the most dependable products for space and has a complete portfolio of QML products designed with 40+ years history of longevity, reliability and performance,” said Mike Elias, Senior Vice President, Space Systems Division, CAES. “Our new LVDS repeater is the latest addition to our QML product portfolio and proven for mission readiness. Offering easy integration into satellite processing systems, it meets customer needs for greater bandwidth and SWaP performance.”

The UT54LVDS454 LVDS Repeater features four 1.25 Mbps, low power LVDS channels in a small 9 mm x 10 mm ceramic package to deliver the connectivity and SWaP performance required for modern space missions using high-bandwidth processors and FPGAs. With a combined throughput of 5 Gbps, this low-latency repeater efficiently distributes more data between processing resources, while protecting critical system assets, including radiation hardened ASICs and radiation tolerant FPGAs, including Xilinx’s Kintex® UltraScale™ XQRKU060. Fully SpaceVPX-compatible, it is available in both QML-Q and QML-Q+ CLGA package with QML-V qualified release planned for Q2, 2022.

James Webb Space Telescope en Route to Discover Origins of the Universe, Study Exoplanets

01/06/2022 | Thales
A joint program between NASA and its counterparts in Europe (ESA) and Canada (CSA), Webb will observe the beginnings of our Universe by reaching back in time to just a few hundred million years after the Big Bang. It will also observe exoplanets – planets outside the Solar System – that are comparable to our own, as well as the formation and evolution of stars and galaxies. The ultimate aim of this successor to the iconic Hubble space telescope is to discover galaxies that reach back to the relative beginnings of the Universe. This state-of-the-art time machine is expected to revolutionize all aspects of modern astronomy. It will unveil the hidden side of the Universe, namely stars enveloped in clouds of dust, molecules in the atmosphere of other worlds, and the light issuing from the first stars and galaxies.
