Rad Hard Communication ICs

 

Microchip works with some of its key customers to make their ASIC designs available as standard products when they correspond to commonly used functions on the market. With this approach, Microchip offers space customers a set of SpaceWire dedicated products allowing them to build a complete SpaceWire network based on rad-hard devices.

Rad Hard ASICs

Rad Hard ASICs

 

The Microchip Aerospace ASIC offering is enriched with new libraries each time the latest generation technology is introduced. As an example, the tenth generation of Aerospace ASIC technologies, the ATMX150RHA series, is a standard cells library characterized on the Microchip CMOS 0.15Μ technology. Combined with these libraries are multiple options for embedding dedicated blocks, such as SRAM, DPRAM, ROM, NVM and a catalog of analog IP’s. A MPW (Multi Project Wafer) service allows the users to lower the NRE.

FPGAs

Rad Hard FPGAs

 

Microchip offers new alternatives for space applications with the SRAM-based FPGA series. In addition to their reprogrammability, Microchip FPGAs support innovative built-in Single Event Upset (SEU) protection. This allows application design without using mitigation techniques that can triple the gate count, thus saving development resources and FPGA cost.

 

Microchip rad hard FPGAs are intended for low gate count designs requiring low-power applications.
