Anaren is a leading supplier of microcircuits to the aerospace, space and defense markets, and is certified and qualified to MIL-PRF-38534 for both Class H (military) and Class K (space) microelectronics. A significant part of our business is supplying radiation-hardened (rad hard) products to the most demanding customers in the industry, providing both custom and standard microelectronic rad hard components to the space and defense industries.
Our standard rad hard and radiation tolerant products for space flight continues to expand. These products consist of operational amplifiers, motor controls, linear and switching power supply components. We have designed and manufactured thousands of rad hard, complex custom hybrid microcircuits that are currently on orbit in both commercial and military satellites, as well as a variety of planetary exploration vehicles. Our rad hard products are also used on the International Space Station, and various launch vehicles. These products have been tested to one or more of the following radiation assurance tests; total ionizing dose (TID), enhanced low dose rate effects (ELDRS), neutron and proton displacement damage, and single event effects (SEE, SET, SEL and SEB).

CUSTOM AND BUILD-TO-PRINT SOLUTIONS
Anaren produces a wide variety of custom hybrids and multichip modules (MCM’s) utilizing our expertise in high performance analog, mixed signal, RF and power electronics circuit design, computer aided design tools and a variety of processes, materials and assembly techniques. We can provide high-performance, high-reliability power modules and power hybrids for use in motor control, actuators, power supplies, inverters, switches and other power control applications. We have successfully designed and manufactured power modules up with up to 1200 amps of output current capability and rated to 1700 volts, all with the robustness to reliably operate in aerospace environments. Among our many custom microelectronics capabilities include:
Multi-layer thick film, co-fired ceramic (LTCC and HTCC), thin film and chip-on-board techniques are all used to offer the ideal combination of performance, reliability, cost and size to suit just about any application.
We design, manufacture, and test circuits up to Ka band frequencies.
For power, we have developed the unique combination of technical proficiencies required to successfully design and produce power hybrid microcircuits and high power modules. Power hybrid design requires expertise in analog, digital, and power semiconductor circuit design. Dealing effectively with high current, high voltage, high power and heat dissipation along with small signal, high frequency integrated circuits for control offers a disparate set of challenges.
We utilize a combination of direct bond copper or actively brazed copper on ceramic (alumina, BeO, SiN or AlN) for power semiconductor substrates and multi-layer thick film on ceramic for the small signal control substrates. Direct bond copper and active brazed copper offer extremely low conductor impedances and superb thermal conductivity for superior performance, efficiency and reliability.
