Integration of a microcontroller in a redundant power supply for space applications

Position Overview:

We are offering an exciting opportunity for a student to join our team and contribute to the integration of a microcontroller in a redundant power supply system for space applications. The project involves enhancing an existing power supply by developing a multi-channel system, automating configuration processes, and implementing a defined communication protocol with an On-Board Computer (OBC).


  • Design and develop a multi-channel power supply system to replace the existing single-channel setup.

  • Automate configuration processes using a microcontroller and develop a compact PCB design.

  • Implement functionality to enable power supply channels to be turned on in a specific order.

  • Identify and select the most suitable microcontroller for the project considering space constraints and cost limitations.

  • Develop a defined communication protocol for seamless integration with the On-Board Computer (OBC).

Required Skills:

  • Proficiency in PCB development.

  • Basic understanding of DC power electronics.

  • Strong programming skills in C and experience with microcontroller programming.

  • Familiarity with low-level communication protocols such as UART, I2C, or SPI is preferred but not mandatory.


  • Currently pursuing a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or a related field.

  • Previous experience with hardware development and microcontroller programming is advantageous.

  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team, with excellent problem-solving skills.

  • Strong communication skills and the ability to document and present work effectively.

Duration and Location:

  • This position is available as a Bachelor's/Master's thesis project or internship.

  • The duration and location of the position can be flexible based on the candidate's availability and circumstances.

Application Instructions:

Interested candidates are encouraged to submit their resume, cover letter, and any relevant reference or project work to Please include "Integration of Microcontroller in Power Supply" in the subject line of your email.

We look forward to welcoming a motivated student to our team and working together to advance space technology innovation. Join us in shaping the future of space exploration!
