PCB Designer to work on Spacecraft Electronics STARDundee Ltd., www.stardundee.com, a leading supplier of spacecraft electronic test equipment and technology, is seeking a Senior PCB Design Engineer to work on new products and technology for spacecraft applications. STARDundee has an excellent track record in innovative, highquality hardware, software and ASICs for spacecraft applications. To meet growing demand, we now seek to expand our research and development team to work on new products related to spacecraft onboard datahandling and avionics networks. STARDundee STARDundee is a successful SME in the aerospace engineering sector, which designs network technology for use onboard spacecraft. STARDundee provides electronic test and development equipment and chip designs for spaceflight applications. All manufacturing is carried out by suitably qualified subcontractors based in the UK. STARDundee concentrates on the design and support activities, with a highly skilled workforce around 80 graduates and 50 PhDs. STARDundee has a wholly owned subsidiary STARBarcelona, based in Sant Cugat just outside Barcelona. The company has now been operational for sixteen years building up a global customer base that includes just about all the famous names in the aerospace industry and the worlds leading space agencies including NASA, ESA, JAXA, CAST, SAST. STARDundee has key distributors in the USA, Japan, China and South Korea, serving Europe and the rest of the world directly from Dundee. STARDundee is a world leader in SpaceWire technology. SpaceWire is a computer network for use on board spacecraft, which connects together instruments, massmemory, processors, the downlink telemetry, and other onboard subsystems. SpaceWire has been a highly successful collaboration between European Space Agency ESA, academia and industry. Prof. Steve Parkes of University of Dundee, and Chief Technology Officer of STARDundee, wrote the SpaceWire standard for ESA with inputs from international spacecraft engineers. The SpaceWire standard was published in 2003 and is now being used or designed into more than 100 spacecraft costing well over 30 billion. Space missions relying on SpaceWire technology include Earth observation, scientific, exploration and commercial spacecraft. STARDundee chip designs are being used on many of these spacecraft and our test and development equipment is being used during their design, integration and test. Over the past several years STARDundee in collaboration with the University of Dundee has been developing a new highavailability, highreliability, multiGbits network technology for space applications, called SpaceFibre. SpaceFibre runs over electrical and fibre optic cable and is set to become the next generation of spacecraft onboard network technology, due to its innovative quality of service and fault detection, isolation and recovery capabilities. The SpaceFibre technology developed by STARDundee is used in the RC64 64 core DSP processor developed by Ramon Chips in Israel. STARDundee is a Microsemi partner providing SpaceWire and SpaceFibre interfaces for the Microsemi RTAX, RTG4 and forthcoming radiation tolerant FPGAs. STARDundee is a major partner in a series of ESA and UK Space Agency projects led by Rutherford Appleton Laboratories which is developing THz radiometer technology for space applications.
