[SatNews] Atmel ® Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML) solutions for microcontroller and touch technology announced its next generation radiation-hardened (rad-hard) mixed-signal ASIC platform for high-performance and high-density solutions for space applications. Manufactured on 150 nm Silicon on Insulator (SOI) process, the ATMX150RHA adds to Atmel's portfolio of rad-hard solutions.
Providing a platform that simplifies the design process for space application, Atmel's new mixed-signal ATMX150RHA delivers up to 22 million routable gates, includes non-volatile memory blocks, flexible form factor with compiled SRAM and DPRAM blocks, and supports 2.5/3.3/5V and high-voltage (25-45-65V) I/Os with pre-qualified analog IP. This new flexible and highly integrated ASIC delivers an overall lower bill of materials for space applications. The ATMX150RHA ASIC platform is supported by a combination of state-of-art third-party and proprietary design tools including Synopsys, Mentor and Cadence.
Leveraging Atmel's nearly 30 years of flight heritage, the new ATMX150RHA integrates Atmel's full service option for customers designing ASICs up to the qualified flight models. As previous Atmel ASIC platform generations, all ATMX150RHA products are fully designed, assembled, tested and qualified in Europe.
ATMX150RHA is a mixed-signal ASIC offer providing high-performance and high-density solutions for space applications. This offer covers ASIC solutions up to 22 million routable gates. With a set of pre-qualified analog IP’s, such as DACs, DACs, PLL, regulators, ATMX150RHA will ease the design of mixed-signal ASIC’s.
ATMX150RHA is manufactured on a 150nm, five-metal-layers SOI CMOS process intended for use with a supply voltage of 1.8V for core and 2.5/3.3/5V for periphery. This ASIC platform is supported by a combination of state-of-art third-party and proprietary design tools from: Synopsys, Mentor and Cadence. The tools from these suppliers collectively form the reference tool flows for both the front and back end.
ATMX150RHA ASIC’s will be available in several quality assurance grades, such as Mil-Prf 38535 QML-Q and QML-V and ESCC 9000.
