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

As a major supplier to the military and aerospace industries, Renesas'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 Renesas 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 are 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

Are Your ICs Ready for the Real Space Environment?

Over the past 19 years, the space industry has placed a higher value on understanding the effects that long-term, low dose radiation can have on ICs. Intersil's radiation testing specialist Nick van Vonno discusses why this shift has occurred and what we are doing to address this change.

Transcript

There are many different types of radiation, and indeed Intersil addresses two of these. Intersil addresses total dose testing which is basically gamma rays. Okay, and at both high and low dose rate, as we'll get into later. Intersil also addresses single event effects of a fairly broad range, and those are typically addressed by heavy ion testing.

Low dose rate testing, you have to contrast this really in order to understand this. You have to look historically at how total dose testing which is done with gamma rays, how that's been performed. Historically this has been performed at what we call high dose rate, and typically to put this in some numbers, that would run somewhere in the range of 50rad to 300rad/s.

Low dose rate, on the other hand, is a much, much slower dose rate. The generally accepted number, and the one we perform our work in, is 0.01rad/s. You see how far that's away from 300rad a second. And that can also be expressed as 10mrad/s if you'd like.

Now why are we goofing with that? And the answer is that the low dose rate is what happens in space. Dose rates in space are almost uniformly low to the order of 10mrad/s. Low dose rate radiation testing has been a, let's call it a hot topic in silicon advanced research since about 1992, okay? In 1992, some researchers out at Mich research came up with a very unusual finding which showed that certain parts that looked very good at high dose rate degrade with amazing rapidity, orders and orders of magnitude, worse at low dose rate. And so, that was not a fully intuitive result, and indeed it had to be repeated, and in the intervening 19 years there is a very large amount of work that's been done on low dose rate effects. And, as we've learned about how different parts react in low dose rate, we've, as an industry, we've swung over more towards a low dose rate testing emphasis rather than a high dose rate testing emphasis.
