The performance parameters that must be addressed when considering power handling within the spaceflight environment are the three main failure mechanisms that can lead to RF breakdown: Thermal limitations of the materials, multipaction, and ionization.
Multipaction Keeping power completely within an interconnect requires more than just shielding stray electrons from bouncing around a vacuum. Proper design, materials selection, and quality construction are essential for all interconnects within a system. One bad cable can ruin an entire system. CarlisleIT engineers understand the complexities and challenges that arise from multipaction, and are experts at keeping electrons moving along their desired transmission path.
Ionization We implement the highest quality controls during the design and assembly processes to control the critical geometries, venting, and cleanliness to prevent the risk of a partial atmosphere or outgassing constituents becoming trapped within the transmission path leading to a corona and eventual RF breakdown.
