300 USD/piece for a mil spec IC? That’s quite cheap!
It’s because this company contracted by Russian government directly, and maybe is 51% owned by government, so it doesn’t have to give a huge shares to Congress lobby as well as spend a lot on industrial and legal wars with other companies. There is a good aspect to competition, which always reflects good on the technological race, but Russia doesn’t have to. The company is under the governmental umbrella and safe and is just concerned with technological race, which is cheaper than congress lobby and legal department.
“peaceful skies over our heads” lol, soviet meaning of peace
Yes, at least here one gota pay about 300 bucks for a normal civilian piece of junk. A new front window for av civilian small private airoplane about 4000$… So compared to that i think its not so overpriced…
In Russia they produces tsar microships, like tsar bomb or tsar bell
Irrelevant. This microchips are equally used for the space industry as well, because the conditions in space are very harsh. Gamma rays, extremely low temperatures, gravitational overload etc.
Furthermore, those systems don’t have to deal with the overhead of such things as operating systems written in high level languages, let alone such things as window managers or anything like that. –Systems designed for military and space agencies are coded specifically for their intended applications in low level Assembler code due to the fact that those systems mission critical and have zero tolerance for failure.
–FWIW, Solaris spotted in pic #15.
MADE IN JAPAN. Looks like the got a good deal on Accretech semi-conductor equipment. Wafer probing machines, etc…
