Space Qualified Standard Products and System In Package Solutions From 3D Plus
It has become increasingly more difficult for developers of space level system developers to find approved and qualified devices for current and upcoming programs.
One company that has flight proven devices for space qualified standard products and system in package solutions is “3D Plus “.
Quality, reliability and size are always critical for any space qualified design, and 3D Plus meets these requirements with a history of more than 55,000 modules in orbit over a period of 13 years of business.
3D Plus has components and modules for a range of applications and industries, including:
- Aerospace, Aircraft, Avionics
- Embedded Systems
A summary and background information on 3D Plus is provided from their website:
3D Plus is a world leading supplier of advanced high density 3D microelectronic products and Die and Wafer Level stacking technology meeting the demand for high reliability, high performance and very small size of today’s and tomorrow’s electronics.
Its patented technology portfolio starts with standard package scale upward to die-size and wafer-level stacking processes, and, enables stacking heterogeneous active, passive, Opto-electronics and MEMS/MOEMS devices in a single highly miniaturized package.
3D Plus offers catalog products upward to more complex System-In-Package (SiP) solutions and associated services.
3D Plus offers high Quality standards:
Manufacturing line and capability domain qualified by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the French Space Agency (CNES) for Space applications
Catalog products listed in the ESA EPPL (European Preferred Parts List) for space applications
Approved supplier for NASA and Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in the USA
Customers’ specific qualifications and approvals
3D Plus is the largest Space qualified catalog products and custom System-In-Packages (SiPs) manufacturer in Europe. Its 3D stacking technology is the sole space qualified worldwide and with a recognized flight heritage of more than 13 years.
Their product portfolio can be represented as “Radiation Tolerant” devices which are suitable for space, avionics and defense application, and “Industrial Grade” devices. The 3D Plus catalog includes:
Products – Radiation Tolerant
- Memory (SRAM, SDRAM, DDR, DDR2, EEPROM, NOR FLASH, NAND FLASH, PROM, MRAM)
- Interfaces (LVDS)
- Point Of Load (POL) Converters (5V input provides a single output voltage adjustable from 1.22V to 4V)
- Peripherals / Protection ICs (Larch-Up current Limiter – LCL)
Products – Other
