Rules of thumb for CubeSats?

Post by admin_Sam »

Not many components from electronic suppliers are space rated, and those that are usually so expensive that they're out of reach for cubesat developers.
For components, like capacitors and microcontrollers, I pick components that can handle a temperature range from -55°C ~ 85°C. I found that to be sufficient for LEO.

Do you have any general "Rules of Thumb" that you use when selecting components or designing you mission?
