In this episode Hywel speaks with Michael Seidl, Systems Engineer for space applications at Texas Instruments.

Texas Instruments is a global manufacturer of semiconductors, integrated circuits, and other electronic components, with headquarters in Dallas, Texas, in the US.

The company has a suite of products for the defense, aerospace, and space sectors, and in this show we talk about how NewSpace engineers can balance risk, quality, and price during component procurement. We discuss:

  • How engineers can get the highest cost-to-performance for electronic components
  • Approaches to qualifying parts and components to improve mission integration
  • The effects of the value chain, from wafer fab to final assembly, on risk and quality
  • The potential for adapting and utilizing commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components beyond Low Earth Orbit (LEO)
