Euro source for space grade modules

Linear Technology and C-MAC MicroTechnology are partnering to provide the European, Canadian and Asian markets with space qualified radiation hardened (rad-hard) monolithic devices and hybrid modules. This important partnership forms part of C-MACs strategy for growth within the space market following C-MACs accreditation to MIL-PRF-38534 Class K in 2007. C-MAC will assemble, test and qualify Linear Technologys rad-hard (RH) die in a new range of package outlines at its plant in Great Yarmouth, United Kingdom.

This relationship will combine C-MACs vast range of microelectronic packaging and test services with Linears state-of-the-art portfolio of high performance analogue integrated circuits (ICs). For the first time, customers outside the USA will be able to purchase high reliability, space grade monolithic and multichip modules incorporating Linears RH IC designs from a European manufacturer.
