Electronic components in space are subject to an especially harsh environment, since they are unprotected by the Earths atmosphere. The effects of radiations, in particular, must be considered very early in the design cycle of any spacecraft.

Aerospace professionals are seeing more stringent demands from engineers and managers for electronics components and systems that meet the highest quality standards, such as Qualified Manufacturer List (QML) Class V—considered to be the highest qualification for space integrated circuits (ICs).

Electronics-Vision proposes a large portfolio of products specifically designed, packaged, tested and qualified so they comply with the standards for aerospace defined by the qualifying agencies.

We are able to offer  a wide aerospace product range, from diodes and transistors to A/D converters and voltage regulators, FPGA´s and processors etc.. It is actively working on further expanding this offer.

Qualification and Quality Conformance Procedure - TM 5005

5 groups of tests and inspections: A, B, C, D, E

  • intended for use in initial qualification, requalification (if product or process changes), and periodic testing for retention of qualification - QCI: Qualification Conformance Inspection
  • 2 classes: class S (Space level) and class B (military level)
General Specification for Integrated Circuits

MIL-PRF-38535: "General Specification for Integrated Circuits (Microcircuits) Manufacturing"

Quality levels: classes M, Q, V (also called “QML-M, -Q, -V”) - Refers to MIL -STD-883 Test methods

  • Class M: covered by MIL-PRF-38535 appendix A. Class M products require a vendor self certification, not a DSCC certification. DSCC performs verification audit of M level suppliers. Documented in a SMD.
  • Class Q: Hermetic (non plastic) products. Military level covered by MIL-PRF-38535 main body + appendixes C, D, E, F, G, H, J. Documented in a SMD.
  • Class V: Space level: class Q + appendix B requirements. Documented in a SMD.

MIL-PRF-19500: "General Specification for Semiconductor Devices - Superseding MIL-S-19500

Quality levels: classes JAN, JANTX, JANTXV, JANJ, JANS - Refers to MIL -STD-750 Test methods

  • Class JAN: Military level QCI Only
  • Class JANTX: Screening and QCI without Visual inspection
  • Class JANTXV: JANTX with Visual inspection
  • Class JANJ: Space level product as defined in the specification sheet that shall be capable of passing the test and inspections in Appendix E for JANTXV as a minimum. Not available for all semiconductor devices.
  • Class JANS: Highest Space level product

Quality levels: Integrated circuits and discrete parts: based on screening level
