Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Contract: W31P4Q04CR082
Award Amount: $98,621.00
 

Abstract:

Currently available RF/Mixed Signal design kits and tools do not provide the necessary precision to accurately predict integrated circuit performance when exposed to total ionization dose (TID), single event effects (SEE) and prompt dose (PD) environments.Specifically, the parametric variation of key performance indicators (KPI) is not accounted for at the device modeling, circuit and system levels.Current engineering practices use adhoc and unpredictable methods to converge on a product KPI¿¿s. This adhoc method is generally referred to as ¿silicon bread boarding¿
