Renesas Intersil

Explore your universe in space and defense with one of the oldest and most reliable brands in the business. The Renesas high-reliability components line began as Radiation, Inc. in 1950, grew into the Intersil brand, and was brought into the Renesas corporation in 2017.

Renesas has built on seven decades of experience in space and defense to design and innovate new improved components for mission success. Nearly every satellite in space trusts a Renesas component on board.

Renesas manufactures their space and defense products with controlled MIL-PRF-38535 QML compliance in Palm Bay, Florida. Products come with a range of reliability data to support SMD, MIL-STD-883 and Class-V/Q compliance.

Renesas Intersil ICs operate aboard the Mars Perseverance rover.

Renesas’s rad-hard power management and analog products are ideal for deep space harsh environments.
