New IRLEDs Target Space Flight And Weapons Systems

The OD-800 series of Neutron and Proton rad-hard IRLEDs target space flight and weapons systems, in which resistance to proton or neutron radiation and lifetimes of more than 10 years are desired. Typical applications include satellites and missile guidance systems. The 800 IRLED series is available in a TO-46 package. Standard products include a flat window, medium angle lens and narrow angle lens. Standard IRLEDs exhibit rapid power output degradation when exposed to neutron or proton radiation. The proprietary single heterostructure IRLED was developed to withstand radiation levels typically required by space or military weapon applications. JANTX to JANS screening and qualification is available on a custom basis. Pricing is $25.65 each/11. OPTO DIODE CORP., Newbury Park, CA. (805) 499-0335.
