[Kvasir] Sioux Lunch lecture

Electronics in vacuum, how low can you go?

Designing electronics for use in vacuum comes with a special set of requirements.

Dissipation, outgassing, failure rates, contamination, etc. all become critical.

In a recent project, Sioux faced the challenge for such a design.

The target for most specs was (almost) zero, so how low can you go?


About Mark Overdijk, principal system designer electronics:

Mark studied power electronics at the Tue and Fontys. Combined study with a board membership at student union ‘Demos’.

He graduated in 1992 and a few months later started working Sioux CCM in Nuenen. Yes, already for more than 27 years, in various high-tech projects, always challenging and most of all: working together with multiple disciplines.

From the development of power converters (400A, 1600V) for a flywheel system for public transport vehicles to the design for electronics used in vacuum systems for two completely different customers.

A versatile job where you never stop learning. With in-depth knowledge of analog, digital and power electronics Mark his current role at Sioux is principal system designer electronics.
