Dimac Red SpA is delighted to announce, that our principle RD Alfa Company has signed the third cooperation agreement with European Space Agency on Development of Integrated Circuit αRD139A for application in ESA missions, contract Nr.4000124213/18/NL/SC was signed by both parties, based on the Development of Microcircuit αRD139A for applications in ESA missions.

The microcircuit will be developed and certified as HiRel and RadHard component for airspace and defense equipment. The manufacturing process and characteristics of the microcircuit ensures maximum compliance with the general technical specifications ESCC 9000. High reliability is ensured by screening and testing in certified manufacturing process. Radiation tolerance, Total Ionizing Dose (TID) not less than 100 krad (Si) with High and Low rate doses.

 

Meanwhile, at RD Alfa, under the contract with ESA, the development of the aRD124A product has been successfully completed. 

The test of prototypes for irradiation by the method of Low Dose Rate (LDR) set was completed successfully. TID LDR test of aRD124A for 450Krad showed positive results on all parameters, performance better than equivalents of USA manufactures. Nevertheless, according to specification, it needed to perform test up to 150Krad, in order to understand borders of our technology and test the IC for its stability, the decision was made to achieve TID LDR dose 450Krad. 

 

This fact, as well as the results of the rejection tests of a number of pilot lots, make it possible to count on a favorable outcome of the procedure for qualifying this product for compliance with the requirements of ESA regulatory documentation, which in turn can further positively influence the commercial success of the product in the Space Industry market.

The official representatives of RD ALFA microelectronics in Europe – Dimac Red SpA will participate in the exhibition Electronica-2018, which will be held in Munich (Germany) from November 13th to 16th. Everyone is welcome to visit their stand 554 at booth B5 where Business Development Managers will tell more about projects of RD ALFA microelectronics. The representatives of RD ALFA Microelectronics will attend the exhibition Electronica-2018 with the specialists of Dimac Red SpA (official representatives in Europe) and they are open for reserving time for meetings.
