Intersil Corp. recently launched the ISL71840SEH and ISL71841SEH, new radiation hardened (rad hard) multiplexers that offer ESD protection and high signal chain accuracy and timing performance. The ISL71840SEH 30V 16-channel multiplexer is a drop-in replacement for Intersil’s HS9-1840ARH, which has been aboard nearly every satellite and space exploration mission (e.g., NASA’s Orion flight test). For applications with form factor constraints, the ISL71841SEH offers high performance and 41% reduced board space compared with an ISL71840SEH two-chip solution.
Both the ISL71840SEH and ISL71841SEH offer per-switch over-voltage protection. When an input channel experiences over-voltage, the remaining channels continue sending data to the ADC. Both multiplexers provide a “cold spare” redundant capability, which enables the connection of two or three additional unpowered multiplexers to a common data bus. If needed, a redundant multiplexer is immediately activated. Both multiplexers provide a wide supply range with split-rail operation from ±10.8 V to 16.5 V and an absolute maximum of ±20 V.
