Crane Aerospace & Electronics congratulates National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on the successful landing of Curiosity on the Gale Crater, Mars, with InterpointTM dc-dc converter and EMI filter modules on board. Curiosity’s goal is not to find Martian life, but rather to seek out carbon-based organic compounds that are the building blocks of life, and then to determine whether the Gale Crater landing site was ever suitable for creatures. The Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) was launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on November 26, 2011 via an Atlas V rocket.
Linear Technology Corp., a leading supplier of high performance analog integrated circuits, announced that its products are playing a key role in the Mars rover launched by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Linear Technology’s high performance analog semiconductors are used in the Mars Science Laboratory (Curiosity) rover to enable collection of vast amounts of data, including detailed visual images of the Martian landscape and precise readings to assist scientists in assessing the geology and history of Mars.
