Atmel Corp. has rolled out its next generation radiation-hardened (rad-hard) mixed-signal ASIC platform to simplify the development of high-performance and high-density solutions for space applications. The ATMX150RHA, developed using 150nm silicon on insulator (SOI) process, delivers up to 22 million routable gates.

The latest device from Atmel 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 analogue IP.


According to the company, this 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 modern third-party and proprietary design tools including Synopsys, Mentor and Cadence.

The ATMX150RHA integrates Atmel's proven rad-hard solution and offers a 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.

Atmel is now engaging with alpha customers on the ATMX150RHA.
