New Space / Space 2.0 – The Business of Space

Over the past few years, a revolution has occurred in the space market. New companies are entering this market with plans for low earth orbit constellations offering world wide internet, earth observation or private networks. They want the benefits of lower cost Commercial Off The Shelf  (COTs) components combined with a degree of radiation tolerance. Avnet Silica is working with their semiconductor partners to support this dynamic new market area. These suppliers are using their vast knowledge and long experience of supporting traditional radiation-hardened components to come up with innovative, lower cost, reliable radiation tolerant components.

We offer components from our supplier partners: Xilinx, Renesas, Microchip and GSI.
