EWC15-NG: a new generation of S/S-Band Transceiver - CCSDS
The product EWC15-NG comes as a new generation of Syrlinks’ transceivers to implement high performance Telemetry, Tracking and Control (TT&C) service. Its hardware design is based and inherits from the renown EWC15 & EWC15-C Syrlinks products, that have been used over the last decade in key space projects such as ROSETTA, DEEP IMPACT, PARASOL, MICROSCOPE, etc.
“We are very proud to release this new generation of high-performance S-Band Transceiver, twenty-five years after the design of the first generation that has been successfully used in several renown space missions” says Eric PINSON, Director of Space activity at Syrlinks.
The EWC15-NG has been especially designed to achieve top class of performances in term of Tx/Rx communication links (fully CCSDS compliant), low power consumption and radiation tolerance. Its very compact and optimized form factor and its built-in DC-DC converter will contribute to the global satellite integration optimization and address natively any implementation within Mini or Micro satellites.
“One of the key challenges has been the hardware cost optimization while keeping the high level of performances of the product as well as maximizing the protection against radiation. It is a great awareness of Syrlinks’ team capability and know-how in the design of NewSpace products”, adds Eric.
The EWC15-NG design belongs “New Space II” Syrlinks product category. This Product Assurance subclass perfectly meets the requirements of Microsatellite missions, targeting a typical 7 year lifetime at Low Earth Orbit with a Total Ionized radiation Dose of 16 krad.
