Paper Abstract

This paper gives a brief overview of the micro- and nano-electronic technologies for space applications under harsh environments, i.e. for operating temperatures beyond the range of -55°C to 125°C, and with exposure to radiation, pressure, shock, etc. The paper also addresses the technology reliability, the challenges and the qualification approaches for the harsh environment applications with a case study. The case study highlights the design-for-reliability approach and space qualification methodology developed to successfully design, fabricate, qualify, and infuse a motor drive electronics assembly with micro- and nano-electronics and packaging technology into a flight mission, which requires an operational temperature range over -128°C to +85°C.
