Space Systems – Motor Drive

Ruggedized high-precision brushless DC motors are critical for the myriad of robotics and automated instrumentation used in space missions. Reaction wheels used to control the attitude of satellites utilize space level qualified Rad Hard GaN devices and solutions for higher precision and lower weight.  Rad Hard GaN power devices and solutions provide the small size, light weight, and precision control that brushless DC (BLDC) motors require and can withstand the harsh environment.

Why GaN?

  • Improved precision
  • Smaller size/lower weight
  • Faster response
  • Lower torque ripple
  • Lower EMI
