We present the results of single event effects (SEE) testing and investigating the effects of space radiation on electronics. This paper is a summary of test results.
We present the results of single event effects (SEE) testing and analysis investigating the effects of radiation on electronics. This paper is a summary of test results.
Single-event effect (SEE) and total ionizing dose (TID) test results are presented for various hardened and commercial power metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistors (MOSFETs), including vertical planar, trench, superjunction, and lateral process designs.
We present results on heavy-ion and proton irradiations for commercial SiGe BiCMOS differential amplifiers: LTC6400-20 from Linear Technology and THS4304 from Texas Instruments. We found that the devices are susceptible to heavy-ion-induced SETs, with relatively low LET thresholds (LETth). The LTC6400 exhibits a LETth < 7.4 MeV•cm2/mg for… (More)
A number of electronic devices have been tested for sensitivity to single event effects for space applications by Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. and collaborators. Test conditions and results are presented for each device.
Robotic rehabilitation has proven to be cost-effective in accelerating the rehabilitation process by eliminating the constant need for supervision by a therapist. This work aimed to design and develop a novel three-dimensional (3D) printable non-assembly five-fingered robotic hand exoskeleton for rehabilitation. A single degree-of-freedom (DOF) linkage was… (More)
We present results on the effects on ELDRS at dose rates of 10, 5, 1, and 0.5 mrad(Si)/s for a variety of radiation hardened and commercial devices. We observed low dose rate enhancement below 10 mrad(Si)/s in several different parts. The magnitudes of the dose rate effects vary. The TL750L, a commercial voltage regulator, showed dose rate dependence in the… (More)
A b s t r a c t — We will discuss the use of cat's eye modulating retro-reflectors based on quantum well (MQW) modulators for free space optical data transmission. Two kinds of systems will be described. The first is based on non-diffraction limited cat's eyes using telecentric lenses. These systems were used to implement a short-range optical link (3… (More)
