EEE Parts and Screening

The purpose of this site is to support parts engineers, designers, system assurance managers and project managers in selecting, testing and procurement of EEE parts for use on NASA programs/projects by providing links to parts related documents developed by NASA centers and Defense Supply Center Columbus (DSCC) as listed below.

EEE- INST-002 (GSFC Parts Document) - Supersedes 311- INST-001, Rev. A. The revised document has added derating guidelines and four new sections to provide instructions for plastic encapsulated microcircuits, crystals, heaters, and switches. Selection, Screening and Qualification requirements, as well as references to military specifications, and test methods have also been updated.

NPSL (NASA Parts Selection List) (NASA Parts Selection List) - Provides a detailed listing of EEE parts types recommended by NASA EEE Parts Assurance Group (NEPAG) for NASA flight projects based on evaluations, risk assessments and quality level requirements for each part type.

PPL (GSFC Preferred Parts List)- A compilation of high-reliability EEE parts suitable for use in space flight applications.

JPL-D-20348 - Provides Institutional Parts Program Requirements for JPL Space Flight Projects

MSFC-STD-3012 - Provides EEE Parts Management and Control FOr MSFC Space Flight Hardware.

DSCC Military Specifications/ SMDs/ Standards - Provides search tools to retrieve military drawings, specifications, and handbooks.

DSCC Standard Microcircuit Cross Reference (Standard Microcircuit Cross Reference) - Provides a cross-reference between standard DSCC SMD, QML or MIL-M-38510 part numbers and their generic or vendor part numbers. This site also provides addition tools to search by description, vendor name, cage code, or NSN.

Part Manufacturers - Provides a list of part manufacturers and QPL (Qualified Product Listing) for each part category.

QPLD  (Qualified Parts List Directory) – Contains a listing of parts and the associated manufacturers approved to provide them to NASA/GSFC specifications.

311-INST-001, Rev. A (August 1996) - Superseded by the EEE-INST-002 on May 2003.; Users are recommended to use the new document for all upcoming projects.
