Honeywell Announces New High Temperature Analog Silicon Chip For Aerospace And Deep Drilling Operations


Precision Operational Amplifier Designed For Extreme Temperature Environments

PHOENIX, May 2008 -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today that its Aerospace business has unveiled a new high temperature Silicon On Insulator electronic component with dual applications in the aerospace and oil industries.

The chip can withstand high temperatures and be used in aircraft engines or in deep drilling operations to enhance the nation’s energy supply. It was designed and developed as part of Honeywell’s diverse suite of aerospace and industrial electronics.

“The aerospace and oil and natural gas industries each require high performance components that operate over wide temperature ranges,” said Brian Link, Business Director, Honeywell Defense and Space. “Honeywell’s Silicon On Insulator technology is critical for instrumentation and sensor measurements in these environments. The dual precision chip will be used in high temperature zones on jet engines for instrumentation and control, as well as operating in temperatures up to 225º C and at depths exceeding 20,000 feet in deep drilling operations.

Honeywell’s high temperature electronics improve system reliability and help to reduce operators’ equipment downtime and weight.

The circuits can operate continuously under extreme conditions, and enable instrumentation for measuring parameters such as temperature, vibration, pressure, positioning, inclination and strain.

Honeywell’s new high temperature dual precision operational chip model HTOP01 was developed with several industrial partners as part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Deep Trek Program.
