Radiation-hardened standard components

BAE Systems’ radiation-hardened standard components leverage years of expertise to provide reliable solutions for space and missile defense.

Expertise includes:

  • Development and QML qualification of advanced semiconductor technologies
  • Circuit design
  • Packaging and test

BAE Systems’ Application Specific Standard Products (ASSPs) portfolio covers the following products ranging from volatile and non-volatile memories to FPGAs and ASICs.


BAE Systems offers a broad family of radiation-hardened static random access memory (SRAM)in various configurations, including 4Mb (512Kx8), 16Mb (2Mx8 or 512Kx32) and 64Mb (8M×8 or 2Mx32) monolithic designs as well as several higher density stacked devices ranging from 20Mb to 320Mb. Also available is a high performance, multi-mode 128Kx72 synchronous SRAM providing unique performance enhancements for certain processing architectures such as L2 Cache support for the RAD750® radiation-hardened PowerPC™ microprocessor.


QML qualified non-volatile C-RAM (chalcogenide random access memory) based on chalcogenide phase change material provides a dense and high-performance replacement for electrically erasable programmable read-only memory. It is available in monolithic 4Mb (512Kx8) or 2Mb (256Kx8 with ECC) with single bit error correction and 20Mb (512Kx40) stacked configurations.


Radiation-hardened PROM (Programmable read-only memory based on oxide-nitride-oxide anti-fuse technology is available in a 256Kb (32Kx8) configuration, with either 3.3V or 5V operation.


For more than a decade, BAE Systems has fabricated and packaged the radiation-hardened RH1020 and RH1280 field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Though these Actel parts were discontinued in 2006, BAE Systems now manufactures the RH1020B and RH1280B as drop-in replacements for the original FPGAs.


Our SpaceWire family consists of a TRL-9 4-port router ASIC, a SpaceWire Endpoint ASIC, and a next generation 4-port router System on Chip (SoC) with RMAP.  These chips can be used as companions to the RAD750 microprocessor or as a standalone instrument controller.  BAE Systems also offers SpaceWire evaluation boards in multiple configurations.
