Research Institution
The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Military Satellite Communication (MILSATCOM), and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have a current and future need for advanced commercially available inherently radhard primitive cell libraries to support new designs for satellites and other spacecraft. American Semiconductor Inc. proposes the use of double gated Flexfet technology for primitive cells. This can enable next generation spacecraft for operations and missions with high density, low power, and high speed radhard components. Moreover these primitive cells endow spacecraft designers with the ability to increase spacecraft performance over current designs without having to use large chip area or redundancy and still have low power and high speed reconfigurable performance. This SBIR Phase I proposal will result in primitive cells in scaleable, sub-lithographic, low power, low cost, and inherently radhard Flexfet CMOS. These primitive cells have commercially viability and will be of significant commercial interest to industry.
