Rad-Hard Applications

For more than 25 years, Atmel France Aerospace, an Atmel subsidiary in France, has been a leading provider of highly integrated solutions to the aerospace industry.

Atmel France Aerospace serves the worldwide market with processors, memories and FPGAs. We are a leader in Europe for the ASIC business and a worldwide leader for the SPARC processor-based solutions, with more than 3,500 flight models delivered.

Atmel France Aerospace gives customers access to the latest innovative commercial technologies by adapting them to rad-hard applications requirements. The 180nm process is in full production, and Atmel France Aerospace is now introducing a 150nm mixed process, 90nm and 65nm.

The same manufacturing lines are used to produce automotive and rad-hard devices. This dual-use approach allows highly competitive and proven, reliable solutions.

Our circuits are available in rad-hard versions that meet the stringent requirements (cumulated dose, latch-up and transient phenomena) of space applications. Design and manufacturing facilities reach international quality standards recognition and are QML-V or ESCC certified.

System integration is a challenge for all our customers and Atmel France’s offering is one of the most complete and cost-effective available on the market.
