Specialty Korean foundry earns essential certification to fabricate high-reliability ICs for demanding defense, aircraft and outer space applications
SEOUL, South Korea, July 25 (Whowired)--Dongbu HiTek today announced that it has been certified to implement high-reliability ICs per the rigorous MIL-PRF-38535 standard using its specialized mixed-signal, BCDMOS process at both the 0.18- and 0.35-micron nodes. Granted by the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), this performance certification adds the specialty Korean foundry to a list of subcontractors eligible to produce ICs per the applicable MIL-PRF-38535J and MIL-STD-883H specifications.
With today’s announcement, Dongbu HiTek’s specialized mixed-signal, BCDMOS processing promises to become a preferred option for the Qualified Manufacturer’s List (QML) of contractors developing products for DLA-managed programs. According to a company spokesperson, “We have already begun implementing mixed-signal ICs for a world leading fabless company specializing in the design of high-performance, high-reliability, radiation-hardened ICs for defense, aircraft and outer space applications. We continue to differentiate our foundry services by focusing on specialized processing that adds high-value to ICs demanding the highest levels of quality and reliability.”
This specification defines the general performance and verification requirements, as well as the quality assurance and reliability criteria, for the manufacture of semiconductor devices used in military and high-reliability applications. It provides device manufacturers with an acceptable established baseline to support Government applications and logistic programs. For QML devices the manufacturer is required to develop a program plan that meets or exceeds the performance of criteria detailed in appendices of this specification. Among those devices addressed in the appendices are those that must comply with MIL-STD-883 as well as those intended for space applications and those that require radiation hardening assurance (RHA).
Establishing the uniform methods, controls, and procedures for testing microelectronic devices suitable for use within military and aerospace electronic systems, this specification includes basic environmental tests to determine resistance to deleterious effects of natural elements and conditions surrounding military and space operations; mechanical and electrical tests; workmanship and training procedures; and such other controls and constraints as have been deemed necessary to ensure a uniform level of quality and reliability suitable to the intended applications of those devices. The term "devices" used in this standard includes monolithic, multichip, film and hybrid microcircuits, microcircuit arrays, and the elements from which the circuits and arrays are formed.
