Flight Model of the SAM (Surface Analysis at Mars) Analog Electronics (AE) Package prior to final testing at Battel Engineering.  The SAM instrument has been developed under the direction of Dr. Paul Mahaffy at the Goddard Space Flight Center for the NASA-JPL MSL Mars Rover mission. The AE consists of 4 modules, Valve-Heater Control, Power Supply, Pyrolysis-Temperature and Filament-Bias (from left to right) that provide the majority of power and analog electronic functionality for the instrument.
