Texas Instruments Makes High-Reliability Products Available


TI opens its inventory of thousands of space-grade and military-grade products to help aerospace and defense electronics companies meet growing demand

Texas Instruments (TI) announced that it is making most of its high-reliability (HiRel) semiconductor products immediately available for online purchase on TI.com, helping aerospace and defense companies quickly get the authentic TI products they need for their next-generation space-grade and military-grade designs.

Engineers and purchasing managers can now access TI’s inventory of thousands of HiRel products on TI.com, including radiation-hardened and radiation-tolerant products in the qualified manufacturers list (QML) plastic, ceramic or metallic packages used in space, avionics and defense system designs. Additionally, purchasers now have multiple options to select date and lot codes before placing an order.

TI’s long history in aerospace and defense electronics

For over 60 years, TI integrated circuits have been used in many spacecraft and defense electronics in the United States, Europe and other regions. TI has a long track record of manufacturing HiRel products, helping assure a steady supply of parts to customers who develop space, commercial and military applications. More than half of TI’s manufacturing sites are QML-certified, enabling the company to quickly qualify, manufacture and ship high-quality, reliable analog and embedded processing products.

Product innovation

Two of TI’s newest HiRel space products include DC/DC buck converters intended to help customers meet key power management challenges of different satellite mission profiles. The TPS7H4001-SP provides industry-leading power density for full QML-V, radiation-hardness-assured satellite applications, and the TPS7H4010-SEP offers the widest voltage range for the shorter missions of low-earth-orbit satellites.

In addition to power management, aerospace companies can purchase other TI devices on TI.com, such as the LMX2615-SP 40-MHz to 15-GHz wideband radio frequency synthesizer with phase synchronization and the new LMK04832-SP ultra-low noise clock jitter cleaner. Both of these clock and timing devices support the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council (JEDEC) JESD204B standard and help to reduce design complexity and weight, while increasing system stability in satellite systems.

Instant access to QML ceramic package material information

Traditionally, one of the biggest barriers to obtaining QML-V and QML-Q products has been access to material content information for ceramic packaging before purchasing those products. To help solve this challenge, TI has added a quality, reliability and packaging data download feature on TI.com to obtain detailed ceramic package material information for up to 100 parts at once, as well as details about restriction of hazardous substances (RoHS); registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals (REACH); and green status.
