The U.S. Navy seeks a partner for licensing and collaboration on a suite of radiation hardened by design (RHBD) power structures that address radiation problems exhibited by commercial power devices.

NSWC Crane's radiation hardened by design power structures correct an array of radiation issues exhibited by commercial power devices such as single-event gate rupture, single-event burnout, and ionizing radiation. Structure designs allow for easy integration into existing fabrication processes.

Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division (NSWC Crane) has developed a patent pending suite of innovative radiation hardened by design (RHBD) power structures addressing an array of radiation issues exhibited by commercial power devices, such as single-event gate rupture (SEGR), single-event burnout (SEB), and ionizing radiation. These RHBD power structures provide unique operating characteristics and performance that lowers manufacturing costs, allows for smaller sizes, reduces overall weight, and supports higher voltages which lead to more design options and flexibility for products. Device designs allow for easy integration into existing fabrication processes with minimal effort and costs. They can be fabricated as a discrete power device or fabricated into more complex integrated circuits such as linear or analog circuits. Government and prime contractors are sought for integrating and transitioning these structures into commercial, space and military products for improved system performance and market demand.
