Intersil's Rad-Hard ICs Blast Off on Orion's Flight Test

Added on April 01, 2015

16 of Intersil's radiation-hardened ICs were onboard the December 5, 2014 maiden voyage of NASA's Orion spacecraft, also known as the uncrewed Exploration Flight Test 1. Intersil's rad-hard ICs are deployed in Orion's crew module, where they are used to support subsystems for mission critical applications in power distribution, navigation and flight control, and in the inertial measurement unit.
