Radiation-hardened A/D converters for military and space applications introduced by Aeroflex RAD



COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., 27 Oct. 2011. Aeroflex RAD, a division of Aeroflex Inc. in Colorado Springs, Colo., is introducing a family of radiation-tolerant analog-to-digital converters for military, aerospace, and high-reliability space applications.


Using specially processed Linear Technology die, Aeroflex RAD’s A/D converter family meets Class-S radiation-hardened specifications. The rad-hard A/D converter family begins with the RAD1419 14-bit, 150-milliwatt power dissipation product packaged in a 28-lead flatpack.

“Customers came to us requesting Class S, A/D converters built to their custom flow," says Chris Barton, the Aeroflex RAD vice president and general manager. "Working with Linear Technology, we can support RAD1419 prototypes, E/M, and SCD mil-standard flight units.”

The device has total-dose radiation immunity to as much as 100 kilorads, and operates in the full military temperature range of -55 to 125 degrees Celsius.
