The main challenges are related to the product innovation and development complexity associated with developed mixed-signal radiation hardened ASIC, with very broad functionality and high-level performance. As far as known, the DPC being an integrated Rad-Hard mixed signal microcontroller is a world première.
The DPC G1 is a versatile mixed-mode, radiation hardened ASIC that can be used in a variety of applications, giving the final product benefits in cost as well as flexibility in use.
On-going applications are:
Overall features and performances are published in project Final report (ESA Artes C&G), publicly available.
