Abstract:
A satellite-mounted instrument has been developed to measure the energy spectrum of the solar proton flux in the solar wind. The instrument consists of a sensor --- the Faraday Cup, an analog signal processing chain, a high voltage modulator and a digital section. This paper presents the digital section designed and built in our laboratory which functions well to (a) interface with the main processor, (b) to provide the logic signals with proper timing to the analog circuitry, (c) to deliver the necessary bit pattern to the high voltage modulator, (d) to provide the calibration mode control signals when necessary, and (e) to synchronize the sequence of events at the begining of every spacecraft rotation. As with all space projects primary concerns beyond the logical functionality consistes of circuit power consumption, instrumental mass, radiation tolerance levels, stability with respect to temperature, and relative ease of component procurement. The NASA WIND laboratory spacecraft that will carry the experiment is due to be launched in December of 1992 and eventually come to park in an orbit at the first Lagrangian point.
