Two of our all-time best selling military specifications for the semiconductor industry have just been modified with amendments: MIL-PRF-19500, “Semiconductor Devices, General Specification for,” and MIL-PRF-38535, “Integrated Circuits (Microcircuits) Manufacturing, General Specification for.” The new editions are available from Document Center Inc. now.
The new 171-page MIL-PRF-19500P with Amendment 1 establishes the general performance requirements for semiconductor devices. Product assurance is provided by effective screening, conformance inspection, and process controls to mitigate risk. Mission assurance and standardization of parts are the highest priorities. This specification establishes a heritage program of semiconductor devices the military and space community can rely on to be dependable and available.
It contains the performance requirement and verification methods for semiconductor devices. The main body specifies the performance requirements and requires the manufacturer to verify that their devices are capable of meeting those performance requirements.
Appendix A contains definitions of terms used throughout the specification. Appendix B contains abbreviations and symbols. Appendix C contains the Quality Management (QM) Program. Appendix D contains the quality system. Appendix E contains the standard verification system for qualified products. Appendix F has been cancelled. Appendix G contains discrete semiconductor die/ship lot acceptance. Appendix H contains critical interface and materials for semiconductor devices.
The margins of MIL-PRF-19500P with Amendment 1 are marked with asterisks to indicate modifications generated by this amendment. This was done as a convenience only and the Government assumes no liability whatsoever for any inaccuracies in these notations. Bidders and contractors are cautioned to evaluate the requirements of this document based on the entire content irrespective of the marginal notations.
MIL-PRF-38535J with Amendment 1 establishes the general performance requirements for integrated circuits or microcircuits and the quality and reliability assurance requirements, which are to be met for their acquisition. The intent of this 202-page specification is to allow the device manufacturer the flexibility to implement best commercial practices to the maximum extent possible while still providing product that meets military performance needs.
Appendix A is mandatory for manufacturers of device types supplied in compliance with MIL-STD-883 and forms the basis for QML classes Q and V. Appendix B is intended for space application and is required for V level devices. Appendix C is mandatory for devices requiring radiation hardness assurance (RHA). Appendix D is mandatory for statistical sampling, life test, and qualification procedures used with microcircuits.
Although the document states that marginal notations are not used to identify changes with respect to the previous issue due to the extent of the changes, there are actually a number of sections with marginal notations suggesting that these are the areas when the amendment has generated changes to the text.
