Research Institution

Mission Research Corporation proposes to develop and demonstrate a very deep submicron cell library and design system for radiation hardened ASICs and standard products. Specifically, we will develop a scalable 0.18 ¿m, hardened by design (HBD) celllibrary to support the radiation hardening of ASICs fabricated in commercial silicon foundries, but exhibiting total dose hardness in excess of 300 Krad(Si), single event effects immunity, and dose rate hardness in excess of 1x10^9 rad(Si)/s. Thefundamental technology underlying this effort will be a key enabler for future System on a Chip designs for space. A prototype digital signal processor will be designed and fabricated to demonstrate the performance and radiation hardness of thelibraries.Radiation hardened by design (HBD) cell libraries targeting commercial silicon foundries will provide electronics with higher performance, better radiation hardness, and significantly lower cost compared to solutions for radiation hardenedprocesses. The application of hardened by design (HBD) will have the beneficial effect of increasing competition and enhancing the availability of innovative solutions to space system requirements.
