Re: Facilities Comments
Thanks for the great input.  Those are some good points to consider.  The facility at TAMU has been great for most of the testing I've been associated with.

NSRL (Brookhaven) is one of the oldest SEE beam lines and has been upgraded since we first used them back in the late '80s. Maybe the highest penetration of the lot? If you need to punch into a micromodule that can't stand deconstruction, this place may be your only bet.

I'd think your folks would not want anything to do with LBNL Cyclotron, the EMI there is hellacious (and that was in the context of POL DC-DCs - how would your RFICs like tens of mV of 50kHz Irep rate impulses (from the roughing pumps on the vacuum chamber, as I made it out) for noise?). Good facility for some types of stuff and quick species changes, but man, the hash....

Northrop Grumman has a nice rad effects lab that takes commercial work.

It is imperative to understand how a device or system will respond when subjected to radiation so that its operation in the harsh, radiation-rich environment of space can be predicted.
There are many screening steps performed on space qualified components. In this installment we will pick up at step 18 with Group A screening.
Space screening for the standard space product offerings which include products such as ADCs, DACs, comparators, amplifiers, voltage references, switches, isolators, regulators, and attenuators
Designs for space applications are commonly created with mission life expectations reaching 15 to 20 years and even longer in some cases
