  4. AMICSA’06 - Applications CMOS Image sensors readout Video processing chain ADC/DAC/HSSL high speed low power telecom processors (mobile & broadband) CAN1553 transceivers TM acquisition & data handling IO control Magnetometer front end Slow sampling high resolution Power converters LASER interferometer AOCS Environmental monitoring X,Gamma ray spectroscopy GNSS receivers Front End AMICSA 2008

  5. AMICSA’08 - Applications CMOS Image sensors readout Video processing chain ADC/DAC/HSSL high speed low power telecom processors (mobile & broadband) CAN1553 transceivers TM acquisition & data handling IO control Magnetometer front end Slow sampling high resolution Power converters LASER interferometer AOCS Environmental (T, wind, humidity) monitoring X,Gamma ray spectroscopy readout GNSS receivers Front End AMICSA 2008

  6. AMICSA – Technology (I/II) PROCESSES • CMOS • Bipolar • BiCMOS • Si / SiGe / SiGeC • bulk / SOI • 1.0, 0.5, 0.35, 0.25, 0.18, 0.13 µm; • 90, 65nm FOUNDRIES • AMS (AT) • AMIS (B) • STMicroelectronics (F) • IHP (D) • Infineon (D) • XFab (UK) • UMC (Taiwan) • TSMC (Taiwan) AMICSA 2008

  7. AMICSA – Technology (II/II) EDA tools, HDL & DK • Tanner • Cadence • Calibre (Mentor) • Pspice / Hspice • ADMS (Mentor) • VHDL-AMS / Verilog-A • proprietary simulators, optimizers: Astrium (UK), S3 (P) MPW programmes • Europractice • CMP • MOSIS • vendor specific… • Multi-Layer Mask AMICSA 2008

  8. AMICSA – Radiation effects Mitigation Techniques (technology and function dependent) • enclosed/bigger transistors, H-shape • guardband rings / STI / LOCOS • avoid diffusion resistors in favour of oxide R • epi layer / hetero-epi • buried-layers • low gain artificially provoked parasitic transistors • DRC isolation rules + waving to allow ELT • SOI • thinner field oxide, thicker gate oxide • hardened libraries (re-size, cell-topology) • ADC offset auto-zeroing (analog and digital correction) • architecture hardening (open vs closed loop) • redundancy and voting/comparing • self-powering functions (reducing SEL options) Rad Threats (TID, SEE) • leakage currents • Vth shifts • parasitic transistors/ latch up • gate rupture • data corruption (bit flips) • transient pulses AMICSA 2008

  9. AMICSA – Future Challenges Easier selection of process, foundry, design kit & tools, rad mitigation techniques, quality level – feasibility! Lower cost access to design kits, manufacturing services Simulation tools. Characterising COTS (NPR,etc) Supporting EU foundries in low volume market Coordinating/reusing EU resources (e.g. rad tests, new libs/DK & IPs), preserving industry competition and individual commercial interests Finding more resources (FP7?) for more tech/components evaluation and qualification. Sharing results ! Maintaining good (better) communication channels (ESCC Working Groups, Harmonisation/Tech Dossiers) AMICSA 2010 AMICSA 2008
