Our background in radiation effects includes natural, tactical and
strategic environments. We have participated in above and below ground nuclear tests and
Cobalt-60, Linear Accelerator, Flash X-ray and reactor characterization. Our radiation
hardening efforts have addressed space radiation, single-event-upset, proton and neutron
damage, high intensity ionizing radiation effects, latch up suppression, EMP effects, etc.
We have participated in radiation hard designs in the bipolar and CMOS technologies.
We have acted on a consulting basis for US Government agencies to
assist in satellite and strategic system hardening. Our experience includes the
Polaris/Poseidon/Trident missiles, Minuteman, and numerous sensor satellite programs.
We did the first ever work in mixed signal and linear SOI/SOS
circuits for application in strategic environments. We performed pioneering work in rapid
annealing and cryogenic CMOS effects. In short, there is hardly a radiation environment or
phenomenon which we have not addressed.
Our radiation effects background has proven invaluable
to the design of commercial and extended temperature range electronics. It has
given us a worst-case perspective which leads to rock solid circuit performance
under the worst of non-military environments.
