Austin, Tex. – Minco Technology Labs, LLC (Minco) and Northrop Grumman Corporation have signed a distribution agreement authorizing Minco to market and sell Northrop Grumman’s line of radiation hardened semiconductor products to customers in North America, Europe, and the Pacific Rim.
“The Northrop Grumman name is synonymous with leading edge process and product technology and Minco is proud to work with them to bring their semiconductor expertise to the commercial market,” said Jeffrey Weiss, Vice President of Sales at Minco. “Customers will be pleased by the engineering design and process expertise that we will make available to them.”
The initial products offered include a family of radiation hardened EEPROMs, analog multiplexers (MUXs), and a line of RF Power Transistors. The EEPROMs are built using SONOS (Silicon-Oxide-Nitride-Oxide-Silicon) technology offering excellent data retention over high temperatures (hundreds of years at 125 Deg C and 5 years at 225 Deg C) and greater than 10 years retention for 300 krad (Si) space applications. The Bipolar Power Transistor devices can source up to 250 Watts while supporting a variety of radar and transponder applications operating in the 960 Mhz to 2900 Mhz frequency spectrum.
“Northrop Grumman designs and builds parts to operate reliably in the harshest environments, whether on the field of battle or in the far reaches of space,” stated Walter Jaron, Northrop Grumman Business Development Manager, “We are proud of our record in providing technology to allow our Armed Services to do their jobs both effectively and safely.”
