In recent years, the development of aviation electronics has made for an increasingly digitized collection of pilot systems in aircraft, along with continuously improving aerospace electronics. As an integral part of any electronics, circuit boards are one of the key components you will find in the controls on board a spacecraft. They direct the electrical charges needed to operate the various devices on board while taking up as little space as possible. However, in order to fulfill their duty within what can be a harsh working environment, the circuit boards used on spacecraft must also be sturdier than those used in everyday electronics. To learn more about what differentiates these printed circuit boards (PCBs) from those used in average electronics, you may read on as we discuss these crucial components in aerospace operations.

In the realm of electricity and electronics, there are two types of currents that are used: direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC). While direct current has a constant voltage, alternating current will periodically switch between positive and negative states as directions change in accordance. Depending on whether you are charging a battery, using a washing machine, or any other activity with electrical systems, it is important to note that most applications necessitate the use of either AC or DC voltage specifically. In the instance that one is in a situation where there is no access to both types of voltage, a device known as a power inverter may be used. Power inverter systems are extremely useful and reliable, yet they can face various issues over time that may necessitate troubleshooting. As such, this blog will cover basic maintenance tips for inverters that can help you ensure continual operation.

An SMD (surface mount device) is any electronic component made to use with surface mount technology (SMT). SMT was developed to meet the rising demand for PCB (printed circuit board) manufacturers to utilize smaller, faster, more efficient, and cheaper components. SMDs are smaller than through-hole resistors and, rather than have wire leads that go through PCB, feature terminations that are soldered to pads on the surface of the board. This eliminates the need for holes in the board, thereby allowing both sides to be used more thoroughly.

Potentiometers and adjustable resistors are both electronic components that may be implemented within a system to govern current and allow for many electronics to function properly. While potentiometers and adjustable resistors have similar uses in manipulating voltage values, their methods of operation and applications often differ. In this blog, we will provide a brief overview of the potentiometer and adjustable resistor, allowing you to understand their differences and how each is used within the realm of electronics.
