Apogee Semiconductor, a provider of technologies and products for space and other extreme environments, announced today their AP54RHC RadHard Logic Family has been released with Flight Units available now. The AP54RHC family products released include functions such as level-translators, majority voters, transceivers and logic gates. These functions are now available for purchase from Mouser Electronics.

The AP54RHC family of products are built with cold-sparing capabilities and triple-redundancy providing maximum reliability and area savings. The AP54RHC family is tailored to small satellite applications with a Total Ionizing Dose (TID) resilience of 30krad (Si) and Single Event Latch-up (SEL) hardened up to with 80 MeV-cm2/mg, encapsulated in a 14-pin TSSOP plastic package.

“The AP54RHC family enables small satellites and large constellations that require high performance, small form factors and radiation resilience at a lower cost,” stated Anton Quiroz, CEO. “Apogee Semiconductor is aggressively focused on addressing the challenges small satellite spacecraft designers are facing to meet aggressive cost targets while also needing to maintain high reliability.”
