Our PCBs are ready! They have been recently soldered, assembled and tested by our Bella Lui II Ground Segment team. These PCBs will be in charge of controlling the operations in the Launch Area, especially lighting the Igniter, which begins the Ignition sequence. “It is the brains of the GSE, which will be fixed on the Launch Rail, explains Lucas Pallez, GS Team Leader. This is a mission-critical system and requires quality and reliable hardware.”
These PCBs were done thanks to the sponsoring from PCBway and with components from Mouser. It allowed GS to have its own custom hardware to match needs in an optimized, efficient, reliable and compact way. The result is satisfying : everything works but the GS team already plans to perform additional tests to be sure that everything will be perfect for one of our upcoming launches.
