Making Vacuum Gauges Radiation Tolerant in High Radiation Environments

Making Vacuum Gauges Radiation Tolerant in High Radiation Environments Electronics, when exposed to radiation, will degrade and eventually fail, but methods can be adopted to extend their life. A customer who was integrating one of our 801W units into a system required the device to pass a radiation life test.  It failed! Read on to see what we did to fix it… Most semiconductor electronic components are susceptible to radiation damage; radiation-hardened components are often based on their non-hardened equivalents, with some design and manufacturing variations to reduce radiation damage susceptibility. Under the effects of radiation, electronic components that aren’t hardened will:
