Abstract:

The Petite Amateur Navy Satellite PANSAT is a small digital communication satellite being developed by the Space Systems Academic Group and the Naval Postgraduate School. This thesis describes the layout of the three final flight printed circuit boards for the radio frequency RF subsystem for PANSAT. The circuits and layouts are documented in detail. A link analysis is performed to verify system design and a power budget provided for integration with other satellite systems. Printed circuit board design fundamentals and high frequency printed circuit board construction techniques are also described.
