Mission Research Corporation (MRC) proposes to design and develop a mixed signal system-on-a-chip based on the Advanced Instrument Controller (AIC) multi-chip module, previously developed by MRC. Specifically, we will design a monolithic, radiationhardened version of the AIC for the Peregrine fully depleted CMOS/SOS process. As a minimum, the monolithic AIC will include an 8031 equivalent microcontroller, a digital port expander, a memory controller with EDAC (error detection and correction), a 12bit analog to digital converter, a 32-to-1 analog multiplexer, a voltage reference, and eight, 10 bit digital to analog converters. Depending on the results of our proposed Phase 1 investigation, it may also include on-chip RAM, ROM, and EEPROM.Aradiation hardened, monolithic Advanced Instrument Controller will significantly reduce the size, weight, and power as well as cost for point of use microcontrollers in space and missile systems. It will also have applications in the commercial sectorsfor autonomous controllers of sensors and other instruments.
