Texas Instruments has announced that it is making most of its high-reliability (HiRel) semiconductor products immediately available for online purchase on TI.com, helping aerospace and defense companies quickly get the authentic TI products they need for their next-generation space-grade and military-grade designs.

Engineers and purchasing managers can now access TI's inventory of thousands of HiRel products on TI.com, including radiation-hardened and radiation-tolerant products in the qualified manufacturers list (QML) plastic, ceramic or metallic packages used in space, avionics and defense system designs. Additionally, purchasers now have multiple options to select date and lot codes before placing an order.

"Increasingly, customers are developing highly sophisticated satellites and other advanced electronics that must operate in harsh conditions, and our customers expect shorter supplier lead times to meet mission-critical project timelines," said Gary Reichmuth, general manager for aerospace and defense systems at Texas Instruments. "With the vast inventory of our HiRel products available on TI.com, supported with lot selection options and associated documentation, customers will be able to obtain HiRel products and get to production faster than with other semiconductor suppliers."
