This webinar provides a brief overview of the main features embedded in the RHRPMICL1A IC device, a rad-hard integrated current limiter designed and developed by STMicroelectronics.
The device was born from the idea of ESA to have an ICL (Integrated Current Limiter) of universal use and containing most of the components for the relevant current limiter functions (such as the Latching, Re-triggerable and Foldback modes), to avoid recurrent re-design and implementation by using discrete components.
The high voltage application allows using the device in power busses of 100V or higher, as those required more and more in the satellites applications.
The webinar describes circuit-level details of how to use the device in the intended applications and presents some experimental results demonstrating its performance. The RHRPMICL1A device has been recently qualifying to the QML-V standard for radiation hardness with SMD number 5962-17211.

Federico MUSARRA graduated in Electronic Engineering at the University of Catania in 2002.
After two years spent working as automation and robotics engineer for a local company he started his career in STMicroelectronics in 2004 as an application engineer in charge, over the years, of several application segments and product families such as Linear and Switching regulators, USB transceivers, USB charging, Serializers/Deserializers for phone camera interface.
In 2016 Federico was appointed as Application Manager for the Power Management Business Unit supporting, among the BU’s product families, the power management Space products.
