Renesas' history and experience in the space and defense industries spans decades, beginning with the founding of Radiation, Inc. in 1950. Renesas leverages this experience to deliver efficient, thermally optimized and reliable SMD, MIL-STD-883 (/883) and Class-V/Q products for the defense, high-reliability (Hi-Rel), and radiation hardened / space marketplaces.
Taking Advantage of GaN in Small Satellite “New Space” Applications
Learn how Renesas GaN FETs allow for more efficient switching, higher frequency operation, reduced gate drive voltage, and smaller solution sizes in satellite applications.
Rad tolerant ISL71043M and ISL71040M provide a size and cost optimized power supply solution for New Space small satellite mega-constellations in low Earth orbit.
The ISL70591SEH and ISL70592SEH rad hard precision current sources provide current excitation to the more than 300 resistive sensors that monitor the health of a satellite’s subsystems.
The ISL71610M and ISL71710M rad tolerant digital isolators provide the highest isolation protection for power supply stages and serial communications interfaces used in low Earth orbit (LEO) small satellites.
The ISL70040SEH low-side GaN FET driver and ISL7002xSEH GaN FETs enable primary and secondary DC/DC converter power supplies in launch vehicles and satellites, downhole drilling, and Hi-Rel industrial applications.
Ultra-Reliable SMD, /883, and Class-V/Q Products
As a major supplier to the military and aerospace industries, Renesas' product development methodologies reflect experience designing products to meet the highest standards for reliability and performance in challenging environments. Our products can be found in virtually every satellite shipped into space.
All our radiation hardened SMD products are MIL-PRF-38535/QML compliant and are 100% burned in. A broad range of radiation hardened and single-event effects (SEE) Class V (space level) compliant products are available for space and harsh environment applications.
Our radiation-tolerant plastic-package ICs is designed to support the emerging field of small satellites that will provide solutions such as high-speed Internet connections to hundreds of millions of users in communities, governments, and businesses worldwide.
