How2Power – Rad Hard Logic ICs Deliver High Performance And Low Cost For Small Satellites

Apogee Semiconductor’s AP54RHC RadHard logic family is based on the company’s Transistor-Adjusted-Layout
for Radiation (TalRad) design methodology that improves the radiation performance of commercial process
technologies, enabling the rapid creation of rad-hard designs in a fraction of the time and effort normally
required to design rad hard ICs. Previewed at NSREC 2020 in December, the AP54RHC family of products is
built with cold-sparing capabilities and triple-redundancy providing maximum reliability and area savings

Apogee Semiconductor Introduces Rad-Hard Integrated Circuits for Small Satellites

Plano, Texas — Apogee Semiconductor, a provider of technologies and products for space and other extreme environments, announced today their AP54RHC RadHard Logic Family based on their Transistor-Adjusted-Layout for Radiation (TalRad™) design methodology that improves the radiation performance of commercial process technologies, enabling the rapid creation of rad-hard designs in a fraction of the time and effort.

The AP54RHC family of products are built with cold-sparing capabilities and triple-redundancy providing maximum reliability and area savings. The AP54RHC family is tailored to small satellite applications with a Total Ionizing Dose (TID) resilience of 30krad (Si) and Single Event Latch-up (SEL) hardened up to with 80 MeV-cm2/mg, encapsulated in a 14-pin TSSOP plastic package.

“Our products and services are targeted towards enabling small-satellites and large constellations that require high performance, small form factors and radiation resilience at a lower cost,” stated Anton Quiroz, CEO. “Apogee Semiconductor is aggressively focused on addressing the challenges small satellite spacecraft designers are facing to meet aggressive cost target while also needing to maintain high reliability.”

The AP54RHC family includes functions such as level-translators, majority voters, transceivers and logic gates. Evaluation units are available now and flight units will be available in 2Q21.

Contact Apogee Semiconductor if you are interested in evaluating the AP54RHC products.

Watch for a 300krad version of the AP54RHC family coming soon!
