Large-Format Dual-Use Radiation-Hard ROIC for IRFPAs and Star-Trackers
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
New, modular radiation hard [>300 kRad (Si)] ROIC designs are required to address the needs of planned ballistic missile defense system. Anticipating the needs for large formats, small pixel sizes, and multiple spectral bands, the features of an existing radiation-hard space imager ROIC will be used to develop the design of an extensible 1024 x 1024, 15-μm pixel ROIC design. The design includes switchable gain modes, flexible windowing, a digital command interface, and a 14-bit ADC. After completing a Phase I design-of-experiments to optimize the design for optical, electrical, and radiation performance, using a qualified CMOS fab, in Phase II a fully functional dual mode ROIC will be fabricated.
