Aerospace & Defense
With headquarters in Phoenix, Arizona, and on-shore design and manufacturing centers, ON Semiconductor offers a secure, stable environment for the development of advanced semiconductor solutions for military and aerospace applications. ON Semiconductor has been granted Category 1A Trusted Foundry and Trusted Design accreditation for its on-shore fabrication facilities in Idaho and Oregon; and has also been granted ‘Broker’ accreditation with Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA). This enables ON Semiconductor to support the entire Trusted flow from initial ASIC design through wafer fabrication, utilizing other trusted suppliers for packaging and test. The combination of the three accreditations benefits military and defense customers by providing a fully integrated trusted manufacturing solution.
Aerospace & Defense Solutions
Rad Hard Aerospace ASICs
ON Semiconductor offers Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) solutions critical for aerospace applications and products requiring rigorous FIT rates due to terrestrial radiation exposure. A combination of characterization test data, soft-error-aware design flow methodology, qualification, and handling flows allow customers multiple options in planning and designing ASICs in a wide variety of applications.
Anti-Tamper Active Shield
ON Semiconductor offers an anti-tamper active shield architecture as one of the first steps to tackle information security, IP protection and anti-counterfeiting in ASIC design. ASIC tampering is a calculated attempt to alter the operation of a product or uncover proprietary information in the design or operation of an ASIC. Critical data of any kind can be a target. Counterfeiting activities like reverse engineering, stealing or copying intellectual property, and repurposing returned merchandise threaten suppliers and customers daily.
Rad Hard Space & Hi-Rel ASICs
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.
