The radiation robustness of a newly designed Wilkinson analog-to-digital converter (ADC) is being investigated. The ADC is a front-end design block within a cold capable, analog sense, application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) manufactured using the IBM 0.5 μm silicon germanium (SiGe) BiCMOS 5HP process. The ASIC is part of a next-generation, cold… CONTINUE READING
