Microsemi RTG4 FPGAs Achieve QML Class V Qualification

We are delighted to announce that our RTG4 high-speed signal processing radiation-tolerant FPGA family has achieved Qualified Manufacturers List (QML) Class V qualification by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). This qualification validates the quality and reliability of RTG4 for the most critical space missions with the highest standards.

To achieve QML Class V qualification, RTG4 FPGAs passed a series of environmental tests to determine resistance to deleterious effects of natural elements and conditions surrounding defense and space operations, as well as mechanical and electrical tests. Upon completion of the QML Class V qualification, RTG4 units from the qualification lot successfully completed 4,000-hour high temperature life tests, validating the high reliability of RTG4 flash cells in extreme conditions. Details can be found in Microsemi’s reliability report.

RTG4 Standard Microcircuit Drawings (SMD) are now posted on the DLA website. The new QML Class V qualification adds to the existing designations achieved by RTG4 FPGAs, including QML Class Q and MIL-STD-883 Class B qualifications. The SMD part numbers are also in the DLA Cross Reference Guide. RTG4 flight units in V flow can be ordered to the SMD part numbers now. RTG4 V-flow part numbers will replace equivalent EV-flow part numbers immediately. RTG4 EV-flow part numbers are no longer orderable.
