Manufacturing & Test Information

Renesas' rad hard analog portfolio strives for best-in-class performance, reduced system SWAP costs and fast time to market. Renesas has an unparalleled track record of providing highly reliable, efficient and accurate radiation hardened products that fit a wide range of space applications, including satellite communications and space flight systems.

The low dose rate ionizing dose response of semiconductors has become a key issue in space applications. Renesas is addressing this market by wafer-by-wafer low dose rate acceptance testing as a complement to current high dose rate acceptance testing.

Renesas is one of only a few RHA Defense Logistics Agency (Land and Maritime) QML suppliers. All of Renesas' radiation hardened SMD products are MIL-PRF-38535/QML compliant and are 100% burned in.
