Up, up, and away with CompactPCI from Kontron
The University of Amsterdam’s commercial spin-off, IDEAS! UvA B. V., has developed under the auspices of EADS Space Transportation the temperature control system and two experiment containers for the DECLIC materials research project, which will be conducted onboard the International Space Station (ISS) from 2008. IDEAS! uses a CompactPCI board from Kontron for the temperature control system. The combination of robust design, small size, and Kontron’s first-rate customer service tipped the scales in favour of the CP303 board.
