Radiation-hardened and radiation-tolerant products can help you develop mission-critical circuits with the high integration, power density, precision, accuracy, and bandwidth required for space applications. Choosing space-grade products for your designs ensures your circuits will have the reliability that enables them to operate for decades in the harsh environments of space.
Texas Instruments has a history in space applications dating back to 1958, when the U.S. Explorer 1 satellite carried into orbit radiation-detection circuitry incorporating the newly released TI 2N335 silicon-grown junction transistor. Subsequently, TI semiconductor devices have landed on the moon and assisted in exploring the planets. TI’s space-grade devices range from precision op amps to data converters and FPGAs.
