Semtech’s new JANS1N5822 Schottky Diode qualified for use in Space Applications

New JANS qualification opens this device up for sale into satellite/spacecraft applications

Semtech Corporation announced the qualification of its new Schottky diode JANS1N5822 to space grade.

The new addition, JANS1N5822 (also available as JANS1N5822US in MELF surface mount packaging), is Semtech’s first Schottky diode for use in space applications. This diode will add to the range of QPL high reliability devices available from Semtech. This qualification will make Semtech the second qualified manufacturer for this highly specialized diode.

“Semtech’s new space grade qualification provides another source for this popular device to our satellite and spacecraft customer base,” said Alan Burchfield, Power and High Reliability Product Line Director for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “As with the rest of the product family, this device and the die within can be used as building blocks for custom devices to match our customer’s specific needs.”

The new diode is qualified to JANS assurance level in accordance with MIL-PRF-19500 and will be available in axial and surface mount (MELF) packages. The device will be available through distribution. For pricing and purchasing options, inquire by contacting a local sales office in the U.S.
