RAD-HARD COMPONENTS: Rad-hard voltage regulators for use in space introduced by International Rectifier

International Rectifier in El Segundo, Calif., is introducing high-current, ultra-low-dropout (ULDO) radiation-hardened hybrid linear voltage regulators for space applications, such as satellites and launch vehicles.

The power electronics parts, which are available in Standard Microcircuit Drawings (SMD), are certified by the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) for land and maritime applications. The parts also are included in International Rectifier's Radiation Hardness Assurance (RHA) program certified by the DLA Land and Maritime division (formerly DSCC) that guarantees radiation performance down to the component level.
