Readying radiation-hardened ICs for space flight

Josh Broline Intersil and Nick van Vonno Intersil

The radiation environment of space presents several challenges for satellites and deep-space flight systems. Acceptance testing of integrated circuits (ICs) ensures predictable performance and prevents system failure while in flight through the various radiation environments encountered in nearly all mission profiles.

Rad-hard for the long haul

Doug Patterson Aitech

Managing the long-term effects of radiation in space environments is essential for designers of components headed for space. Mission length, more than any other factor, contributes most heavily to the sustainability of electronic components in radiation-laden applications.

Graphics processing - having it both ways

Charlotte Adams Abaco Systems

Military systems are noted for their high processing demands, a situation that is particularly true for graphics processing. Like their commercial counterparts, military displays are becoming faster, higher-resolution, and more complex. Both defense surveillance and commercial video-game applications, for example, share a need for the maximum possible raw graphics computational horsepower.

Very high-speed sampling and serial ADCs in embedded systems

Thierry Wastiaux Interface Concept

Latest-generation active electronically scaled array (AESA) radar systems can have thousands of TX/RX modules. High bandwidth is needed to connect each array element data converter to the FPGAs that process incoming and generate outgoing data streams. New software-defined radio systems use advanced reconfigurable modulation schemes that increase channel bandwidths and deliver unprecedented wireless data rates. To increase the performance of software radio and electronic warfare systems, it has become critical to use efficient, low-power, low-pin-count, FPGA-connected converter interfaces.

White Paper: Accelerating Product Innovation Through Agile Development and Continuous Engineering

Staff, IBM

Software is driving an expanding percentage of embedded system functionality and value, fueling growth in code base volume and complexity. Frequently, rising complexity is further compounded by and increasing desire for connectivity. Parallel to these mounting software creation challenges, engineering organizations are facing tighter time-to-market windows. Companies resolutely clinging to traditional software development practices are finding their antiquated and protracted processes insufficient. OEMs need to extend the basic tenets of the Agile methodology and embrace a continuous engineering approach.
