Syrlinks - Communiqué de presse / Press Release - Le 01/04/22

Syrlinks, a leading company in the design of RF Communication systems for Space releases the XONOS, a new X-Band transmitter for micro and mini satellites.

XONOS comes as a new generation of Syrlinks’ data transmitters to implement High-Data-Rate downlink from satellite to the ground segment.

“We are very proud to release this new High-Data-Rate transmitter that brings unmatched capabilities in term of downlink throughput.  With XONOS, we maintain our strategic focus on following the evolution of the Satellite Earth Observation market, which requires ever larger volumes of data to be captured, processed, and transmitted.” says Eric PINSON, Director of Space activity at Syrlinks.

XONOS: unmatched performances

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.
