PIC amplifiers on the space shuttle
Imax Corporation, in association with Lockheed Martin and NASA, embarked on a program
to develop new IMAX 3D cameras to fly in space.
This program, started at the beginning of 1997, has resulted
in new space rated cameras equipped with PIC-25/50 servo amplifiers. The cameras were being launched during the
course of 1999.
The unique features of the PIC amplifier made it the amplifier of choice:
- Power/weight ratio
- Space rated in almost a standard package
