Space is the ultimate extreme environment. The extreme temperatures, vacuum of space, and radiation variability can easily cause electronics to stop functioning and fail. In space your microchips can never fail since there’s no replacing it once you’re in orbit. That’s why it’s critical for these chips to be reliable, secure, and able to withstand the harsh environments of space.
We are honored to have Dr. Deniz Civay on the podcast, who is the Harsh Environment Battleground Owner of Aerospace and Defense at Global Foundries, a semiconductor company. Deniz shares her #STEM #originstory and we discuss her path from #artist to #Satellites to Battleground owner at Global Foundries!
Available NOW on @spotifypodcasts & @applepodcasts - live on #youtube at 3PM ET. Please like, share, and subscribe!
