Robust ASICs for Space and High Reliability Applications

ON Semiconductor offers Radiation Hardened by Design (RHBD) solutions critical for space and Hi-Rel applications. Available in the company’s 110 nm digital Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) processes, the design offering includes a novel flip-flop architecture called Self Restoring Logic (SRL). SRL remains hard to single event effects at high Linear Energy Transfer (LET) while operating up to 700 MHz, far exceeding the capability of legacy RHBD flip-flop architectures. A latch-up resistant Dual Port SRAM with on-board error correction code (ECC), hardened clock elements, high speed I/O cells and a single event latch up protection cell. These cells are compatible with the existing digital ASIC flows resulting in superior pricing, development spans and manufacturing cycle times.
