Aviation components are subject to extreme requirements
Components that are used in aviation are subject to extreme requirements and therefore must meet particularly strict criteria. In addition to reliability, temperature and radiation resistance are of particular importance. There are also especially high security requirements for the prevention of tampering.
High radiation resistance is a pre-requisite for the use of a component
Typical examples of the use of radiation-resistant components include high altitude weather stations that soar into the stratosphere. With increasing distance from the Earth’s surface, the radiation resistance becomes more important, so that for applications in space there are strong specifications in terms of radiation resistance.
