RD Alfa microelectronics has signed the cooperation agreement with European Space Agency

RD Alfa microelectronics has signed the third cooperation agreement with European Space Agency (ESA) on Development of Integrated Circuit αRD139A for application in ESA missions, contract Nr.4000124213/18/NL/SC was signed by both parties, based on the Development of Microcircuit αRD139A for applications in ESA missions.

αRD139A is quad comparator, compatible with well-established industrial type LM139A.

The microcircuit will be developed and certified as HiRel and RadHard component for airspace and defence equipment. The manufacturing process and characteristics of the microcircuit ensure maximum compliance with the general technical specifications ESCC 9000. High reliability is ensured by screening and testing in the certified manufacturing process. Radiation tolerance, Total Ionizing Dose (TID) not less than 100 krad (Si) with High and Low rate doses.

MMeanwhile, in our organization, under the contract with ESA, the development of the αRD124A – Quad Operational Amplifier, compatible with well-established industrial type LM124A (link to datasheet) product has been successfully completed. The test of prototypes for radiation resistance by the method of Total Ionization Dose (TID), Low Dose Rate (LDR) set was completed successfully. TID LDR test of αRD124A for 450Krad showed positive results on all parameters, performance better than equivalents of USA manufactures. Nevertheless, according to specification, it needed to perform test up to 150Krad, in order to understand borders of our technology and test the IC for its stability, the decision was made to achieve TID LDR dose 450Krad.

This fact, as well as the results of the rejection tests of a number of pilot lots, make it possible to count on a favorable outcome of the procedure for qualifying this product for compliance with the requirements of ESA regulatory documentation, which in turn can further positively influence the commercial success of the product in the Space Industry market.

The official representatives of RD ALFA microelectronics in Europe – DIMAC RED S.p.a will participate in the exhibition electronica 2018, which will be held in Munich (Germany) from November 13th to 16th. Everyone is welcome to visit their stand 554 at booth B5, where Business Development Managers will tell more about projects of RD ALFA microelectronics. Also the representatives of RD ALFA Microelectronics with the support of the LETERA Cluster will attend the exhibition, please reserve time for the meeting.
