Colorado Springs, Colo.--Aug. 25, 1997--UTMC Microelectronic Systems (Colorado Springs, Colo.) announced the release of a Commercial Radhard gate array family called UTO.6CRH is designed for high reliability space applications that require SEU immunity and 100,000 rads of total dose hardness. The UTO.6CRH is fabricated in a commercial 0.6m silicon gate CMOS process that utilizes a special minimally invasive process module run in AMI's commercial foundry. The ASICs produced from this family will be lower than their traditional radhard counterparts.
UTMC's YTO.6CRH gate array family features array sizes from 3,400 to 400,000 usable gates and is ISO 9001 an QML Class Q and V compliant. Gate arrays up to 200,000 gates are available from UTMC, with 400,000 gates available in 1998. The gate array family is radiation hardened to 1.0E5 rads (SiO2) total dose (functional) and SEU immune cells to less than 1.0E-10 errors/bit day. It features clock rates up to 150 MHz and operating voltage of 5V and 3.3V. It also features JTAG (IEEE 1149.1) boundary-scan registers built into I/O and low noise high pin count package technology for high-density high-speed circuits.
The UTO.6CRH family of gate arrays is supported by Mentor Graphics, Synopsys, and VHDL tools on HP and Sun workstations. A cell library with over 170 options include SSI, MSI, and 54XX equivalent functions, as well as configurable RAM, MIL-STD-1553 functions, microcontrollers, and other macro/megafunctions.
