Contract: W91260-11-C-0002
Award Amount: $1,499,722.00


Micro-RDC is developing a Radiation Hardened 64Mbit SONOS based Nonvolatile Memory with the highest levels of reliability. It will be manufactured in a130nm technology at a high volume, high yielding semiconductor foundry. No process development will be needed for this project. The product will include techniques such as redundancy, internal EDAC, hardened latches and proven RHBD layout in order to meet all the radiation hardening requirements of this project. As an improvement over previous low density Mil Spec EEPROMs, the charge pump will be hardened so that that the product meets SEE and TID requirements for both Reads and Writes. Micro-RDC will partner with a major Semiconductor Manufacturer to bring this product to market. The first implementation of this product will be a Hardened FPGA configuration memory.
