Integrated circuits manufactured by Silanna and provided by Sapphicon Semiconductor Australia have been long adapted for the aerospace and defence industry due to their high production values and robust design. The Silicon-on-Sapphire technology provides an ability to integrate RF, analog, digital and passives on a single chip.
Integrated circuits manufactured by Silanna have been used for many satellites launched over the last ten years as well as the Mars Rover.
For non-US customers, Silanna's integrated circuits are developed independently of US defence applications which also makes them independent of ITAR restrictions. For US customers, Silanna works closely with the US government's defence microelectronics activity (DMEA) towards trusted foundry status.
Integrated circuits are manufactured under an AS9100 quality system and are produced for maximum performance and effectiveness for defence and aerospace applications amongst a wide variety of others.
