Another F-15 Success Story From the Microcircuit Emulation Center with AME & GEM
One of the successes of the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Emulation programs is an application within the F-15 Eagle (WSDC 19F) Weapon System. The role is air superiority fight multi-role combat aircraft. The system was produced first in 1972 and continues into the present. July 1976 was the time of the first deployment. The United states Air Force has 249 in service, while foreign militaries have 508 in service.
DLA’s Emulation Programs created and manufactured a single ASIC Form, Fit, Function replacement for the obsolete MDC281 three chip module critical to the F-15 flight controller. This prevented costly, time consuming hardware and software redesign. The DLA GEM Program provides a permanent on-demand manufacturing source.
