Charged Particle Detector

Overview

Charged Particle Detector SXC-SINP-CPD-01 was developed by Sputnix in collaboration with scientists from SINP (Moscow State University). It is fully compatible with Orbicraft-Pro platform and can operate as payload in other satellites. Compact size and low power consumption allows installation of a detector in nanosatellites.

Detector consists of digital and analog subsystems. Analog part use scintillator for particle detection and double photo-electronic amplifiers with high-voltage power source. Digital part use high-speed ADC and MCU for data analysis and storage. Digital and analog subsystems can be powered separately to reduce power consumption during downlink sessions. For data exchange with satellite systems CAN interface is used.

Detector provide simultaneous monitoring and single events parameters measurement. Re-corded data can be accessed via satellite data bus.

Features:
• Mid-size satellites design in light and small package
• Ultra-low power CAN device
• Built-in DC converter for constant consumption

Configuration:
• Back cover removal to reduce weight
• CAN bus data rate
• Telemetry frequency
