Space mission electronics require higher performance than conventional semiconductors offer.
Semiconductors – Space
Electronic systems for space missions face additional challenges in addition to the need for higher levels of performance and reliability than conventional semiconductors. The effects of radiation on semiconductors in space can be devastating if the devices are not properly designed and tested to be able to survive in this harsh environment. Primary applications include commercial and military satellites, deep space missions, and space-based observatories like the Hubble Space Telescope.
e2v has been and continues to be a key supplier for Space customers and offers a variety of parts suited for survival away from the protection of the Earth’s atmosphere.
e2v designs, manufactures, qualifies and ships a large variety of semiconductor devices for a diverse range of markets. With more than 30 years’ experience in semiconductors, e2v offers commercial and high-reliability (hi-rel) devices that provide virtually all of the basic semiconductor functions, including microcontrollers and microprocessors, memories, logic and programmable logic, and analog and interface. e2v offers over 4,000 unique standard off-the-shelf devices and also offers design services, custom redesigns, and assembly and test services.
e2v provides complete solutions with our Signal Chain Integrity Program (SCIP), which can guarantee supply and performance on products for 10+ years through qualification, inventory management and product resurrections. This program can protect critical sockets across a program or platform by offering multi-project wafers to lower customer costs for families of parts.
e2v also has strategic partnerships with Freescale, Everspin, Maxim, and Micron to provide a range of high-reliability versions of their standard products. We also offer capabilities to extend the life of classic ICs for a host of mission-critical programs, providing replacement hermetic parts for DMS (Diminished Manufacturing Sources) and EOL (End of Life) products.
