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:
