Syrlinks has debuted their EWC15-NG Transceiver product, a new generation of the company’s transceivers to implement high performance Telemetry, Tracking and Control (TT&C) service.
The hardware design is based and inherits from the EWC15 and EWC15-C Syrlinks products that have been used over the last decade in key space projects such as ROSETTA, DEEP IMPACT, PARASOL, MICROSCOPE, and so on.
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 smallsats.
This Product Assurance subclass perfectly meets the requirements of smallsat missions, targeting a typical seven year lifetime at LEO with a total ionized radiation Dose of 16 krad.
“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.” said Eric Pinson, Director of Space activity at Syrlinks. "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.”
