Ion Physics FX25 Flash X-Ray Facility

Radiation Test Solutions’ Colorado Springs facility hosts an Ion Physics FX25 flash X-ray source for prompt dose rate Transient Radiation Effects in Electronics (TREE) testing.  Our highly experienced specialists can perform turnkey MIL-STD 883/750 upset, burnout, and latch-up testing or rent and operate the source for client testing.

Test Object Size

The Ion Physics FX25 instrument can accommodate test objects up to 50cm x 50cm in an EM shielded cabinet. Isodose contour and axial dose/dose-rate maps for dose-area determinations are available upon request. Our experts are available to help clients reconfigure the FX-25 to suit their testing needs.

General Description
