Challenges in PCB Design for Space Applications

The importance of PCB design for space applications cannot be underestimated. Complex electronic systems serve as the nervous center of rockets and satellites, coordinating critical functions of expensive instruments and processing vast amounts of data. These systems are exposed to the unforgiving space environment, which presents a range of extreme conditions and challenges that require specialized design techniques and certified environments for PCB manufacturing.

Microvias in printed circuit boards

In the current technological world, "microvia holes" in printed circuit boards (PCBs) represent a revolutionary approach to manufacturing. By integrating these holes, whether through mechanical or laser drilling, it has been possible to achieve high-density interconnections (HDI) and create designs that were previously deemed impossible with traditional drilling methods. However, despite their enormous potential, concerns about their long-term reliability persist, making them the subject of intensive research.
