How to Ensure Highest Reliability with COTS Devices for Military and Aerospace Applications

In partnership with Maxim

The use of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment allows the military to benefit from the technological advances, cost savings, and short development time of commercial devices. In this webinar, we will discuss the latest system supervisors including voltage supervisors, power supply sequencers, watchdog timers, switch debouncers, and pushbutton on/off controllers to increase system reliability. In addition, the latest GPS and high-speed DAC blocks and the ability to incorporate die for size and weight reduction will be presented.

In cases where Class M is still required, we will discuss Maxim’s capabilities in:

  • Full compliance to Mil-Std-883, Mil-Prf-38535, and JEDEC standards
  • Operation over the full military temperature range (-55°C to +125°C)
  • Lead (Pb) finish availability
  • Ruggedized screening of COTS parts for military temperature characterization
  • Continuity of supply to support long program life
