QuinStar Enhances Test Capabilities for Space-Qualified Millimeter-Wave Hardware - RF Cafe

Thermal vacuum test chamber for flight hardware testing.

September 24, 2019 - QuinStar Technology, Inc. of Torrance, CA, was recently certified for flight hardware testing by Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). After administering the JPL System Safety Survey and Vendor Chamber Verification Survey, JPL certified QuinStar's thermal vacuum chamber for testing flight hardware for JPL/NASA missions.

The chamber enables hardware testing under a simulated space environment. The 6.5 cubic ft. (0.2 cubic meter) chamber handles a temperature range of -100°C to 150°C and achieves a vacuum level of 5 x 10-7 torr. It is equipped with:

  • Software interface of automatic pneumatic operation of vacuum system
  • Fail-safe over-pressure protection in the event of power loss
  • Fail-safe controller for over- and under-temperature protection of DUT in the event of loss of power or liquid nitrogen coolant (LN2)
  • Cold finger to attract outgassing molecules

In addition to the thermal vacuum chamber, QuinStar's environmental test lab includes thermal, shock, vibration, and humidity testing capabilities. With these testing processes, our class 10,000 clean room, in-house design and fabrication capabilities, and flight hardware quality system, QuinStar is well positioned to provide fully qualified millimeter-wave (MMW) hardware solutions for space missions.

From high-power-handling ferrite components to GaN-based solid state power amplifiers (up to 200 Watts in Ka and Q-bands), QuinStar is a significant resource for space-qualified MMW hardware.

Dr. Naresh Deo, Vice President of New Business Development, directs QuinStar's space programs. For more information on QuinStar’s capabilities in space qualified MMW hardware, email Naresh Deo at ndeo@quinstar.com

    Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
