Quantic Evans hybrid wet tantalum capacitors are perfectly suited to handle the unique requirements demanded in space applications. They are routinely screened and qualified to NASA EEE-INST-002 in addition to individual mission requirements. Our capacitors have also earned approval from the European Space Agency to be used on the ROSE-L satellite. Read More
Our capacitors are the most power dense in the industry and provide significant SWaP savings compared to other capacitor technologies, making them ideal for space-based applications where minimizing volume and weight are critical design considerations.
Quantic Evans is Going to Mars with NASA
One of the biggest questions in planetary science is whether life ever arose on Mars, and NASA and the European Space Agency are sending a cutting-edge instrument to the red planet to find out – and Quantic Evans hybrid wet tantalum capacitors are on board!
The Mars Organic Molecule Analyzer, or MOMA, will be the most sophisticated mass spectrometer ever sent beyond Earth to collect and analyze soil samples. Quantic Evans capacitors support the mechanism that collects the soil samples by powering the electric pulse needed to fire the solenoid, the device that in turn, actuates the arm of the sampling mechanism. Don't miss the launch scheduled for 2028.
