Abstract
• Orora Design Technologies, teamed up with ATK Mission Research, proposes to develop and demonstrate the feasibility of a template-based synthesis approach to the design of high performance radiation hardened analog-to-digital converters with 100 MSPS sampling rates at 12-bit or greater resolution with 250 miliwatts or less power consumption. The output of this research is a parametric cell and architecture library that captures expert radiation-hardening design techniques and can be adapted to different design performance requirements and fabrication processes, along with the computer-aided design toolset that enables such template-based automated radiation hardened synthesis in a mainstream EDA design environment that can be used by satellite electronics designers. The technical novelty of this research consists of (a) joint optimization of architectures, processes, and circuits for varying applications and radiation hardenness, (b) adaptive design templates, and (c) hierarchical radiation-aware parametric behavioral modeling.
