Apogee Semiconductor has announced their AP54RHC RadHard Logic Family based on their Transistor-Adjusted-Layout for Radiation (TalRad) design methodology that improves the radiation performance of commercial process technologies, enabling the rapid creation of rad-hard designs in a fraction of the time and effort.
The AP54RHC family of products are built with cold-sparing capabilities and triple-redundancy providing maximum reliability and area savings. The AP54RHC family is tailored to small satellite applications with a Total Ionizing Dose (TID) resilience of 30krad (Si) and Single Event Latch-up (SEL) hardened up to with 80 MeV-cm2/mg, encapsulated in a 14-pin TSSOP plastic package.
The AP54RHC family includes functions such as level-translators, majority voters, transceivers and logic gates. Evaluation units are available now and flight units will be available in 2Q21.
“Our products and services are targeted towards enabling small satellites and large constellations that require high performance, small form factors and radiation resilience at a lower cost,” said Anton Quiroz, CEO. “Apogee Semiconductor is aggressively focused on addressing the challenges small satellite spacecraft designers are facing to meet aggressive cost target while also needing to maintain high reliability.”
A 300krad version of the AP54RHC family will be coming soon from Apogee Semiconductor.
