ESA-qualified rad hard power MOSFETs
Infineon’s rad hard PowerMOS MOSFET power transistors are based on the company’s unique CoolMOS™ superjunction technology. ESA-qualified to ESCC-5000, the PowerMOS rad hard N-channel MOSFETs cover voltage classes from 60V to 650V in four different packages. The award-winning 650V PowerMOS is the highest voltage QPL-qualified rad hard MOSFET on the market today.
Made in Europe, these rad hard power MOSFETs are unclassified with regard to export regulations. All rad hard PowerMOS products are also available as qualified bare die.
Infineon also offers a broad range of DLA-qualified rad hard MOSFETs through IR HiRel, an Infineon Technologies company. See the IR HiRel rad hard MOSFETs here.
Unlike standard commercial products, HiRel products must be submitted to various levels of quality conformance testing to ensure that the products are capable of performing to specifications in the often harsh environments of military and space applications. Both the United States and European community have each developed specifications that detail the sequence of quality conformance testing.
In Europe, the European Space Agency (ESA) is the controlling agency and has issued specifications that govern the quality conformance testing sequence performed on discrete semiconductor components, hermetically sealed and die, namely ESCC-5000.
Infineon HiRel hermetic products are available as (1) commercial hermetic, designated (P) with the same fit, form and function as the flight parts and without radiation hardness or screening per Chart F3 in ESCC Generic Specification No. 5000, or (2) ESCC-5000 space-qualified for flight use. Such parts are denoted as (ES). Infineon-branded rad hard MOSFETs are also available as qualified bare die.
