Custom MMIC in Orbit: Space Qualified GaAs MMICs per MIL-PRF-38534 Class K & MIL-PRF-38535 Class S

Posted on Wednesday, March 08, 2017

Custom MMIC highlights the company’s space qualification capabilities for high performance GaAs MMICs. Customers seeking high MTTF, high FITs, and 100% electrical and visually inspected parts can trust in Custom MMIC to deliver the required quality and reliability.

Over 70 commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) MMIC die products provided by Custom MMIC are able to be qualified to MIL-PRF-38534 Class K, or could be hermetic packaged and qualified per MIL-PRF-38535 Class S. The space qualification elemental evaluation is either performed internally by Custom MMIC, or through their trusted sub-contractors. In addition, Custom MMIC can develop and qualify a custom solution, if so desired.

Several of Custom MMIC’s products have already undergone the rigorous high-level visual inspection, burn-in, 1000-hour life test, 100% elemental electrical results, and wafer lot qualification. For example, the CMD162 Ka-Band LNA has heritage, having completed Class K qualification and was launched in a major communications fast broadband satellite in 2015.
