VIRTUAL: Space and Military Standards for Hybrids and RF Microwave Modules (8/5/2021 – 8/6/2021)


Instructor: Thomas Green

Description: The US military specifications for the manufacture of hybrids and RF microwave modules can be confusing and overwhelming to the inexperienced user. This course is designed to explain in a logical manner the quality and manufacturing requirements for building custom Class K hybrids for military and space applications.

The governing document is MIL-PRF-38534 Hybrid Performance Specification, which in turn further calls out specific test methods in MIL-STD-883L Test Methods and Procedures for Microelectronic Devices. Mil 883 is a collection of destruct and non-destruct test methods used as screening and qualification tests to verify microelectronic performance requirements and to assess the reliability of finished modules.
