Abstract
Producing components that satisfy all of the BMDS space and interceptor environment specs traditionally has been not only costly but also untimely. One of the most difficult design constraints is making the components unaffected by the radiation environments of space. We propose to develop and demonstrate a standard cell structured ASIC approach that will ultimately produce radiation hardened components faster and cheaper than historically possible. This approach can take advantage of either RHBD or RHBP libraries. Because this approach is based on a standard cell approach it facilitates migration to new processes seamlessly and almost effortlessly. Once the one base structured ASIC is manufactured the AFRL and other DoD programs will be able to manufacture components with only two personalization via mask layers as opposed to creating all process masks which are expensive.
