Rad Hard

For 30 years, Atmel France Aerospace has been a leading provider of highly integrated solutions to serve a wide variety of aerospace applications. We use the latest innovative commercial technologies like 8-bit AVR® MCUs and Atmel ǀ SMART ARM®-based MCUs and adapt them to rad-hard applications requirements to provide proven solutions, volumes, and long term reliability. With over 3,500 flight models delivered, our offering provides the most complete and cost-effective solutions available on the market.

  • ASICs tolerantes à radiação (Rad-Hard) — As ofertas da Atmel Aerospace ASIC são enriquecidas com novas bibliotecas cada vez que uma última geração de tecnologia é introduzida. Como exemplo, a nona geração de tecnologia da Aerospace ASIC, a série ATC18RHA, é uma biblioteca de células padrão característica da tecnologia CMOS 0.18Μ da Atmel. Combinadas com essas bibliotecas estão diversas opções incorporadas dedicadas para bloqueios e uma grande seleção de encapsulamentos herméticos complexos. O serviço MPW (Multi Project Wafer, Wafer multiprojetos) permite que usuários reduzam o NRE.
  • Rad Hard Communication ICs — Atmel works with some of its key customers to make their ASIC designs available as standard products when they correspond to commonly used functions on the market. With this approach, Atmel offers space customers a set of SpaceWire dedicated products allowing them to build a complete SpaceWire network based on rad-hard devices.
  • Rad Hard FPGAs — Atmel offers new alternatives for space applications with the SRAM-based FPGA series. In addition to their re-programmability, Atmel FPGAs support innovative built-in Single Event Upset (SEU) protection.  This allows application design without using mitigation techniques that can triple the gate count, thus saving development resources and FPGA cost.
    Atmel rad-hard FPGAs are intended for low gate count designs requiring low-power applications.
  • Rad Hard Memories — Atmel has a long track record with memories (SRAM, DPRAM, FIFO and EEPROM) and its current space memory offering supports the space industry efforts for the rationalization of part variations with respect to size and format, package, power consumption and speed.
  • Rad Hard Processors — Over the last 16 years, Atmel has steadily built a space microprocessor strategy based on the SPARC® architecture. With worldwide sales of over 3000 flight models featuring the Atmel® TSC695 — and already over 300 flight models with the Atmel AT697 — the Atmel SPARC processor roadmap boasts an unrivalled flight heritage.
  • Dispositivos Rad Tolerant com tolerância à radiação — A Atmel produz microcontroladores altamente confiáveis tolerantes à radiação para o mercado espacial com características especiais para aplicações espaciais.
    Estes produtos tolerantes à radiação vêm de um projeto comercial comprovado e implantado de forma abrangente. As mudanças na tecnologia garantem a imunidade a latchup nestes dispositivos com SEL LET>60Mev. As caracterizações de desempenho SEU e TID também são fornecidas nestes produtos.
