The first day (27.06.2018) After about 3600km flight with not a lot of sleep and some exciting hours in unknown places we finally landed at 7 pm (UTC+0) in Santa Maria on the Azores. Fortunately, after a total of about eight hours of flight we could finally find some rest in the Hotel Santa Maria. […]
Visiting Straschu Holding GmbH A few days ago we visited one of our sponsors – Straschu Holding GmbH – to bring them the necessary components for our PCBs. Since we have decided to use some sensors with a very small package that cannot be soldered by hand, Straschu helps us with the assembly. This allowed […]
The secondary mission PCB is finally finished! The secondary module is ready and can be sent to production together with the primary module. The boards are manufactured by our sponsor Straschu Holding GmbH.To save space we have placed small SMD components on the board, which we cannot solder by hand. These are assembled by Straschu. […]
The first PCB for our satellite is ready. Creating the primary PCB Primary PCB layout Rooting for the primary PCB Finishing the PCB This is for our primary module, which is equipped with a microprocessor from STM.In the case of wiring, we paid particular attention to work carefully by planning enough space for the individual […]
Our first Test-PCBs have arrived! Our long awaited test printed circuit boards (PCBs) have finally arrived. Now we have to solder all of the components, so we can test our hardware and software.
We decided on a microcontroller! For our CanSat, we want to use the microcontroller STM32F413. This chip has enough interfaces to connect our sensors to. Since it runs at a frequency of 100MHz, we have no problems with the calculations we need to perform. Before we deploy everything to a circuit board, we will test […]
