UC1846-SP: Difference between -SP products and -EP products

Part Number: UC1846-SP
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: UC1846-EP



My customer has questions about the TI product line.

What is the difference between -SP products and -EP products? (ex. UC1846-SP, UC1846-EP)

Can '-EP' products be used in low-orbit satellite projects?

Thank you.


  • Hey JH,

    We do not consider EP appropriate for space grade designs.
    Our recommendation for low-orbit satellite projects is to use something called space EP or -SEP

    Se below for a full comparison of space grade offerings and qualification levels

    There is some extra testing for EP, but not to the level we recommend for space products.
