and company news
ARQ-RSB02 is a Full CMOS device designed by ARQUIMEA using the DARE180 rad-hard standard cell library under the QUANTUM project. The new digital ASIC allows controlling and managing the RF subassemblies of the ELSA+ phased array active antenna and enabling fast beam hopping.
ARQUIMEA solution for ESAIL project consisted of four devices per solar array, so a total of eight Flight Models plus one spare unit were provided to LuxSpace.
ARQUIMEA’s PRE2POS Gimbal is the right solution for the target applications in small sats. It is a standard product, cost affordable and which successfully delivery in due time and form of the EQM model.
ARQUIMEA led a consortium that carried out the design of rad-hard integrated circuits running on the RTG4, as well as verification tools to prove the equivalence of the designs with and without SEE mitigation techniques.
European Commission under the Horizon 2020 program aims to reduce the dependence from non‐European sources on a critical space technology. Thus, ARQUIMEA’s REACT developed three different HDRMs (5 KN, 15 KN and 35KN) and proved their qualification.
ARQUIMEA implemented a solution based on the company’s HDRM, together with an electronic system for the controlled actuation of the devices. The system is formed by two REACT 5kN Standard Temperature units and the electronics for synchronized and near-simultaneous activation (<20ms).
JUICE (JUpiter ICy Moons Explorer) is an ESA Mission where ARQUIMEA proposed the use of their space-qualified release nut REACT 15KN extended operation temperature range and proved to be the optimal solution.
LEA project was looking for a fully European solution for the release nuts part of the HDRM. They had to be used for both the release of the arm and the deployable reflector.ARQUIMEA proposed the use of their space-qualified release nut REACT 15KN extended operation temperature range.
The development of a complex mixed-signal product like SEPHY based on the IEEE802.3 commercial Ethernet standard, relies not only on its implementation (trade-off between rad-hard design and performances) but also on a good understanding of the application requirements and the related market.
