U.S. DLA Qualifies Microsemi RTAX-S/SL FPGA for QML Class V

Microsemi RTAX-S/SL field programmable gate arrays (FPGA)

Microsemi’s RTAX-S/SL field programmable gate arrays have received QML Class V qualification. The U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) qualified the FPGA as Qualified Manufacturers List Class V in accordance with military performance standard MIL-PRF-38535 space-level qualification requirements. QML Class V is the highest standard in the industry for space integrated circuits. Microsemi radiation-tolerant RTAX-S/SL FPGAs are ideal for space-flight systems. They feature high performance, low power, single-chip form factor and live-at-power-up operation.

The QML Class V qualification of the RTAX-S/SL FPGA product family provides engineers with an added level of assurance that Microsemi FPGAs are of the highest quality and reliability. Microsemi’s QML Class V parts include a 2,000 hours life test on each wafer lot and a destructive physical analysis (DPA) on each assembly lot. This removes the need for customers to perform these tests, providing scheduling and cost benefits.
