Tested for high radiation

Qualification tests are based on the European Cooperation on Space Standardization (ECSS), European Space Components Coordination (ESCC), and MIL-STD 461 standards.

Qualification tests for single event effects (SEE) are performed using protons, although it is also possible to test with heavy ions and neutrons. This latter possibility is offered separately.

Qualification tests for total ionizing dose (TID) are performed using a Cobolt-60 gamma ray source with an average rate of 1.1 Rad/min to a total dose of 30 kRad over a period of 19 days.

The rate of 1.1 Rad/min is representative of the environment in LEO for which the products are intended and is actually harsher on the components than testing with higher rates to the same total dose.
