Ultra-Reliable SMD, /883, and Class-V/Q Products

As a major supplier to the military and aerospace industries, Intersil's product development methodologies reflect experience designing products to meet the highest standards for reliability and performance in challenging environments. Our products can be found in virtually every satellite launched into space.

Radiation Hardened

All Intersil radiation hardened SMD products are MIL-PRF-38535/QML compliant and are 100% burned in. A broad range of radiation hardened and single-event effects (SEE) Class V (space level) compliant products are available for space and harsh environment applications.

Radiation-Tolerant

Our radiation-tolerant plastic-package ICs is designed to support the emerging field of small satellites that will provide solutions such as high-speed Internet connections to hundreds of millions of users in communities, governments, and businesses worldwide.

Defense & Hi-Reliability

We offer high-performance analog, digital and power management products to military, aerospace, and other harsh environment customers. SMD products are offered in hermetic packages and with guaranteed performance over a -55 °C to +125 °C temperature range, are MIL-PRF-38535 compliant and 100% burned in.

Assured Quality

  • Consistent design and manufacturing in Renesas' MIL-PRF-38535-qualified facility in Palm Bay, Florida
  • Renesas is one of only a few RHA Defense Logistics Agency (Land and Maritime) QML suppliers
  • All rad hard products are fully Class V (space level) compliant
  • All products have DLA SMD drawings
