In order to respond to the growing needs of the New Space market (Low Earth Orbit satellites with a short mission lifetime), Rakon has recently released a radiation tolerant XO and a radiation tolerant VCXO, both based on a COTS (Commercially Off The Shelf) design.
They have been designed for missions requiring radiation tolerance at a reasonable cost and with a short lead-time: TID (Total Ionizing Dose) spec is 72 or 100 kRad (for CMOS) and Single Event Latch-up is guaranteed up to 32.4 or 62 MeV (for LVPECL).
Key features of these radiation tolerant COTS XO and VCXO also include:
Both products are available with different types of screening: from EM (Engineering Model) to FM (Flight Models), with 3 possible screening options for the FM in order to precisely fit the various requirements of the New Space projects. The COTS design of these both products make them cost-effective and ideal for the small LEO (Low Earth Orbit) satellites requiring radiation tolerant components at a reasonable cost.
The RK105 XO and RK205 VCXO are Rakon's newly developed products for Low Earth Orbit satellites. For further information, or support, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
