ESA adds DDC as an Approved Source for Rad Hard EEPROM Memories

Bohemia, New York (February 2020) – Data Device Corporation (DDC) proudly announces that our 1Mb (128k x 8) EEPROM QML-V Rad Hard memories (SMD# 5962-38267 – 28C010T & 28C011T) have been added to the European Space Agency (ESA) preferred parts list (EPPL, issue 39). DDC has provided space-qualified radiation hardened solutions to the space industry for more than 30 years, and the 100,000+ components we have deployed in space have experienced zero failures. Additionally, based upon recent industry communications, DDC will soon be the only source for EEPROM Rad Hard memories. 

DDC’s EEPROM memories are designed for high reliability in the most demanding space applications, and feature a greater than 100 krad (Si) total dose tolerance. DDC’s EEPROM memories are offered in a variety of voltage, density and speed options, including 3.3V and 5V, with memory densities ranging from 1Mb to 20Mb, and with access times as low as 120ns. DDC offers a wide range of radiation-hardened memory products, including EEPROM, PROM, SRAM, SDRAM, and NOR & NAND flash. DDC’s microelectronic components and single board computers have been qualified by NASA, ESA, and JAXA, as well as thousands of missions serving the space community for decades.

Benefits include:

  • High Reliability
    • QML-V approved ceramic hermetic package
    • Total dose hardness > 100 krad (Si)
    • SEL & SEFI immune
    • TRL-9 (flight heritage)
    • 10 year data retention guarantee
  • Long Life Cycle Support
    • Configuration control maintaining full traceability and quality control for the long life cycles of space and military programs
    • Uninterrupted product availability… EEPROM supported for decades
  • Non-ITAR
