About MIL-PRF-38535J

This specification defines the general performance and verification requirements, as well as the quality assurance and reliability criteria, for the manufacture of semiconductor devices used in military and high-reliability applications. It provides device manufacturers with an acceptable established baseline to support Government applications and logistic programs. For QML devices the manufacturer is required to develop a program plan that meets or exceeds the performance of criteria detailed in appendices of this specification. Among those devices addressed in the appendices are those that must comply with MIL-STD-883 as well as those intended for space applications and those that require radiation hardening assurance (RHA).

About MIL-STD-883H

Establishing the uniform methods, controls, and procedures for testing microelectronic devices suitable for use within military and aerospace electronic systems, this specification includes basic environmental tests to determine resistance to deleterious effects of natural elements and conditions surrounding military and space operations; mechanical and electrical tests; workmanship and training procedures; and such other controls and constraints as have been deemed necessary to ensure a uniform level of quality and reliability suitable to the intended applications of those devices. The term "devices" used in this standard includes monolithic, multichip, film and hybrid microcircuits, microcircuit arrays, and the elements from which the circuits and arrays are formed.
