JSC 49894, ELECTRONIC PART SELECTION AND DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR LOW CRITICALITY SPACE FLIGHT PAYLOADS (05-NOV-2003)
JSC 49894, ELECTRONIC PART SELECTION AND DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR LOW CRITICALITY SPACE FLIGHT PAYLOADS (05-NOV-2003)., This document provides a brief overview of several EEE parts selection and design related issues that are critical to successful development of reliable space hardware. Many part technologies have weaknesses that can lead to component failures if the part is subjected to the launch and orbital environments. Guidelines are furnished herein for the
selection and application of electronic parts in order to enhance hardware reliability and
to aid individuals who might be new to the space flight hardware development processes. This document is intended to provide electronic component selection and design insight that is generally not found in other program materials. Reference materials listed in this
text are among those considered as required reading for the hardware developer. The developer is encouraged to establish links to STS and ISS program personnel and to
obtain materials referenced in this text as well as those recommended by program
personnel, as this text is by no means a comprehensive coverage of flight hardware
design considerations. For ISS payloads an excellent phasing document is SSP 57057 now approved as revision B. Key safety related policies and determinations are found in a collection identified as NSTS/ISS 18798 Revision B entitled Interpretations of NSTS/ISS Payload Safety Requirements.
