Tekmos Launches 250ºC High Temperature TK74H373 Tri-State Octal D-Type Transparent Latch

AUSTIN, Texas, September 1, 2015 -- Tekmos, Inc., a leader specializing in sustainable solutions in the development and manufacturing of solving End of Life and high temperature microprocessors for extreme environments up to 300ºC, is proud to announce the launch of new product TK74H373 Tri-State Octal D-Type Transparent Latch. It has the same pinout as its predecessor, the 74H373 which was designed for less harsh environments.

The TK74H373 is designed for use in extreme temperature environments, such as down-hole oil drilling and wireline applications. It can also be used in jet engine applications where it is necessary to interface directly to high temperature structures. The part uses a special high temperature SOI process, with tungsten interconnect, to prevent metal migration. It has gold bond pads with gold bonding to improve bond reliability.

The TK74H373 is the newest Tekmos high temperature standard product. Tekmos also offers ASIC capability for designs that must be kept proprietary for IP reasons.
