The 5 Approaches for Producing Radiation Hardened Solutions

June 2018 – Electronic components and systems are highly susceptible to damage and malfunctions caused by ionizing radiation. These environments may be encountered in high altitude flight and in outer space, as well as in the vicinity of nuclear reactors or devices. In order to ensure the reliable operation of electronics subjected to such environments, a variety of techniques can be employed to make them radiation tolerant. This article will highlight the value of the various radiation mitigation technologies available.

White Papers
Radiation Performance of a Flash NOR Device

We present the results of single-event effects (SEE) and total ionizing-dose (TID) testing performed on the die used in DDC’s 56F64008 flash-NOR devices. The device was single event latchup (SEL) immune at LET=85 MeV cm2/mg. All single event functional interrupts (SEFI) observed could be cleared by resetting the part without a need for power cycling.

Correlation of Single-Board Computer Ground-Test Data and On-Orbit Upset Rates from the Gaia Mission

DDC's SCS750 single board computers (SBC) have been operating without interruption on board the Gaia satellite since its launch in 2014. The uninterrupted operation is possible because of several hardening techniques that allow the SBC to correct single event upsets (SEU) in the constituent components. We present on-orbit SEU data for the SBCs. All errors analyzed here were corrected by the SBC and had no effect on mission operation. We analyze the data to determine the accuracy of current models, as well as the effects of the space weather environment.
