Embedded Subsystem

Optical and Electrical PCBA Design and Development

Embedded Subsystems are printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) that perform a specific task – for example as a network router, Ethernet switch, GPS controller or some other dedicated computing function – within a larger electronic system.

The design and fabrication of Embedded Subsystem assemblies is a critical in-house capability at Glenair where ruggedized, temperature, vibration, and shock-tolerant PCBAs are key components in many of our turnkey electronic and photonic systems including USB hubs, Ethernet switches, optical media converters, and other embedded electronic and opto-electronic LRUs. Our in-house Embedded Systems Center of Excellence offers Nadcap accreditation for special processes, full component-level documentation, as well as comprehensive acceptance testing.

For electronic and opto-electronic systems designed for aerospace, battlefield gear, avionics, defense, energy, industrial and other harsh application environments, we bring professional levels of expertise and focus to all aspects of design and packaging. Stringent environmental, electromagnetic, and mechanical stress specifications are adhered to, including:

Acceptance test stations and software, leveraging LabView, Visual Basic and other tools, have been developed in-house by Glenair to support comprehensive board qualification and testing.

High-Speed Datalink Protocols

High-Speed Datalink Protocols

Many high-speed data transmission protocols rely on impedance controlled transmission lines, EMI shielding and exacting management of trace paths and board densities. Glenair is able to support these high-speed electrical and optical requirements for the broad range of common protocols, including 10G Ethernet and USB 3.0. Other core application capabilities include electrical-to-optical Ethernet media conversion, multiplexed signal aggregation, RF over fiber data transmission, soldier communications and computing subsystems, device power management, Ethernet and/or USB switching, routing and more.
