The effects of ionizing radiation and hot electrons on the BiCMOS switching response have been studied. The radiation induced surface recombination current in the base of the bipolar transistor and the radiation and hot electron induced resistive leakage paths in the BiCMOS structure have been modeled as a function of the interface state density and the oxide trapped charge density. ...

The susceptibility of Insulated Gate Field Effect Transistors (IGFETS) to ionizing radiation (neutron and gamma) has been exhaustively studied in the past few years1-3. Furthermore, it has been established that most of the damage, and hence degradation, is due to positive charge generation and accumulation in the insulating region. It has also been determined that the thermal stability and intrinsic ...

  • CMOS/SOS Frequency Synthesizer LSI Circuit for Spread Spectrum Communications

    Using a 3.5 $micro;m gate length complementary metal-oxidesemiconductor /silicon-on-sapphire (CMOS/80S) technology, a singlechip, radiation-hardened, direct digital frequency synthesizer has been developed. The circuit is a critical component of a fast-tuning wideband frequency synthesizer for spread spectrum satellite communications. Each clock period, the chip generates a new digitized sample of a sine wave, whose frequency is variable in 220 steps from dc to one-half the clock frequency. Operation at up to 7.5 MHz is possible in a worst case environment, including ionizing radiation levels up to 3 x 105 rads(Si). A computationally efficient algorithm was chosen, resulting in 12-bit output precision with only 1084 logic gates and 3840 bits of on-chip read-only memory (ROM). The accuracy of the algorithm is sufficient to maintain in-band spurious frequency components below  - 65 dDc. At 300 mW, the chip replaces an MSI implementation which uses 25 integrated circuits and consumes 3.5 W.

    This book aims at describing in detail the different layout techniques for remarkably boosting the electrical performance and the ionizing radiation tolerance of planar Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (MOS) Field Effect Transistors (MOSFETs) without adding any costs to the current planar Complementary MOS (CMOS) integrated circuits (ICs) manufacturing processes. These innovative layout styles are based on pn junctions engineering between the drain/source and channel regions or simply MOSFET gate layout change. These interesting layout structures are capable of incorporating new effects in the MOSFET structures, such as the Longitudinal Corner Effect (LCE), the Parallel connection of MOSFETs with Different Channel Lengths Effect (PAMDLE), the Deactivation of the Parallel MOSFETs in the Bird's Beak Regions (DEPAMBBRE), and the Drain Leakage Current Reduction Effect (DLECRE), which are still seldom explored by the semiconductor and CMOS ICs industries. Several three- dimensional (3D) numerical simulations and experimental works are referenced in this book to show how these layout techniques can help the designers to reach the analog and digital CMOS ICs specifications with no additional cost. Furthermore, the electrical performance and ionizing radiation robustness of the analog and digital CMOS ICs can significantly be increased by using this gate layout approach.
