PAYLOAD SOLUTIONS

With our innovative satellite products, payload systems can be built quickly and cost-effectively with cutting-edge performance.

PAYLOAD SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR SATELLITE

NEWSPACE TECHNOLOGY

EMM offers payload solutions for NewSpace satellites:

EMM on-board electronics has a modular design and can be configured as needed. The core element is a System-on-Module (SoM) based on FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) and SoC (System-on-Chip) technology. Currently, we are developing the first SoMs in the frame of our ESA BIC incubation period based on Microchip and NanoXplore devices, which will allow our customers to select the best suited processing systems for their demands.

All our SoMs have an FPGA/SoC as the central element which is accompanied with external memories (e.g. SRAM, FRAM, LPDDR4, Flash) and communication interfaces (e.g. I2C, UART, CAN, SpaceWire) as required. Common features of all our SoMs are radiation tolerance, capability for in-orbit re-configuration and energy-saving modes. Firmware blocks are available to enhance SoM functionality with processor softcores, data acquisition and drive/power cores. Inter-board connectors enable the design of stacked units wherefore SoMs are connected to other EMM products like secondary power supply or mixed-signal interface provider.

SPACE SOLUTIONS FOR ALL MISSION TYPES

EMM PRODUCT CATEGORIES

EMM  focusses to developing products for New Space applications. With our long-standing experience in space engineering, we design these modules to have a high reliability although they are mostly based on cost-efficient commercial components. EMM modular design allows to exchange commercial parts with its space-qualified counterparts to enable a seamless interchange of products among the categories shown below.

S1 / CLASSICAL SPACE

Products with highest reliability design for long mission life time and high orbit

R2 / NEW SPACE

Products combine the advantages of S1 and I3: Cost-effectiveness and high reliability

I3 / COMMERCIAL INDUSTRY

Products based on commercial electronics, ideally suited for lab setups and rapid prototype development
