Space Level T for Hybrids

Space Level T for Hybrids

State of the Art’s space heritage began with the Voyager program in 1977. Today, State of the Art resistor products can be found on most satellite programs.


Space programs prefer to use MIL-PRF-55342, MIL-PRF-32159, or MIL-PRF-914 products when available. Many space applications use product level R, U, S, V, or T MIL-PRF-55342 products for mission-critical applications. Product level T provides 100% power conditioning and a full Group B and is commonly used in mission-critical space applications. 


Space programs also use source control drawings to screen products. Some source control drawings subject QPL products to additional screening or apply tighter pass/fail criteria to meet the requirements of the mission-critical space application.


State of the Art has created a series of high-reliability screen protocols based on military specifications for a variety of its resistor products. Ask a member of our team about these high-reliability test protocols. Space level datasheets can also be found on the Defence Chip Resistors Page.
