Aeroflex Microelectronic Solutions - HiRel, an Aeroflex Holding Corp. business, has added four products to their RadHard-by-Design (RHD) Analog Function Series Family which consists of Quad Op Amps, Quad Comparators, Analog Multiplexers, and AtoD/DtoA Converters specifically developed for spacecraft designers working on LEO, MEO, GEO, HEO or Deep Space missions with specific radiation requirements.
“We are very excited to add the RHD5961 Voltage Reference, RHD5962 Voltage Thermometer and the RHD5950 and RHD5958 AtoDs to the family of HiRel off-the-shelf standard products,” said Anthony Jordan, Vice-President, Product Marketing and Applications Engineering. “The RHD Series, now with 25 off-the-shelf product offerings, provides analog function building blocks to support development of HiRel space application circuits for a wide range of missions. All RHD series components are designed for low power, single power supply operation (3.3V to 5V) over the full military temperature range of -55oC to +125oC and are all available in industry standard hermetic ceramic SOIC packages.”
“With industry plans for deep space missions to Jupiter and its moons requiring higher radiation performance, the need for very low power, immunity to ELDRS (Enhanced Low Does Radiation Sensitivity), devices able to survive greater than 1 Mrad(Si) of Total Ionizing Dose (TID), while immune to Single Event Latch-up (SEL) became apparent,” continued Jordan. “The design approach to the RHD Series leveraged Aeroflex’s development of higher complexity mixed-signal products that have proven radiation performance, as well as flight heritage (TRL 9). The RHD Series of RadHard-by-Design Quad Op Amps, Quad Comparators, Analog Multiplexers, and AtoD/DtoA Converters meet these deep space radiation performance requirements.”
The RHD Series (aeroflex.com/RHDSeries) is available on Standard Microcircuit Drawings (SMD) view aeroflex.com/RHD Series for the SMD numbers. Please contact Aeroflex for the RHD Series product pricing.
