On Board Data Handling Design

The On Board Data Handling unit, sometimes referred to as the data processing and command subsystem is essential to the operation of the satellite as it allows the different subsytems to properly interface.

An example of a ready-made PCB is from the pumpkin cubesat kit: http://www.cubesatkit.com/docs/datasheet/DS_CSK_FM430_710-00252-C.pdf

This Board is essentially the on board computer (OBC) that has to interface with all subsystems, therefore it falls under the ‘computing’ category of the project.
