A proposal is made for the design, demonstration, and productization of aradiation tolerant field programmable analog array (RT-FPAA) suitable forspace and terrestrial applications. Phase I activities include evaluation ofthe RT-FPAA architecture, design and evaluation of analogconfigurable-analog-block architecture (CAB). The proposal is based on twocombining technologies: laser formed metallic connections that provide thebasis for high quality programmable interconnects needed for programmableanalog arrays; and a high performance fabrication process that provides thesemiconductor technology for fabrication of the RT-FPAA.The RT-FPAA provides a low cost, quick turn-around, analog circuit solution toradiation tolerant signal conditioning microcircuits for use in satellitetelemetry systems. The device will provide analog designers with capabilitiescurrently employed by digital designers using FPGAs.
