Abstract
Silicon Space Technology and team member ATK Mission Research, in collaboration with Jazz Semiconductor, propose 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 scaleable 180 nm, hardened-by-design (HBD) cell library to support the radiation-hardening of ASICs fabricated in commercial silicon foundries. The performance and radiation hardness will be demonstrated in Phase I by extensive modeling and simulation of the process. Our team has extensive expertise in commercial process integration, device development in leading-edge commercial technology, device development in traditional HBD, and radiation-hardening techniques using HBP and HBD technology. This critical combination is the key to successful implementation of the radiation-hardened process modules. Silicon Space Technology's proprietary HBI approach, combined with leading-edge silicon foundry manufacturing and an industry leading HBD innovator, should realize significant performance and manufacturing advantages over existing RHIC producers, while reducing component cost and time-to-market. The emergence of such products from leading-edge CMOS foundries should achieve the previously unattainable goal of deploying the latest electronics while minimizing the risk of mission failure due to space radiation.
