Hess made outstanding contributions to revisions of the military performance specification for microcircuits. The revised document addresses the current engineering and technical needs of the space community, military agencies, and DoD equipment manufacturers for robust military and space grade microcircuits.
As the number of modules per chip continues to multiply in the coming decade, the data traffic is expected to outstrip the information-handling capacity of the electronic microcircuits that carry and route the traffic, says Yurii A.
