A particular kind of microprocessor that is created to function dependably in high-radiation situations is known as a radiation-tolerant microprocessor. Space, high-altitude flights, nuclear power plants, and other situations where the presence of ionising radiation can disrupt or harm electronic components are examples of these conditions.
By changing the electrical charge stored in memory cells of microprocessors, radiation can result in failures or errors such as bit flips. By adopting specialised manufacturing processes and circuit designs that make them less sensitive to radiation-induced mistakes, radiation tolerant microprocessors are made to lessen these impacts.
Error-correcting code (ECC) memory, redundant circuits, and toughened materials are a few of the methods utilised to create radiation-tolerant microprocessors. These methods aid in ensuring that the microprocessor can function properly even when exposed to ionising radiation.
Applications for radiation-tolerant microprocessors include satellite communications, nuclear power facilities, and space exploration. They are essential in assuring the dependability and security of electronic systems in such settings.
The Global Radiation tolerant microprocessor Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The MIC69303RT 3A Low-Dropout Voltage Regulator is the first commercially available, rad-tolerant power device introduced by Microchip Technology Inc. Targeting LEO and other space applications, the new high-current, low-voltage MIC69303RT is a power management system.
To satisfy the needs of the mission, the device is available for prototype sampling in both plastic and hermetic ceramic. Since the MIC69303RT is built on tried-and-true COTS components, doing initial testing and early development is made simpler.
The device can produce output voltages as low as 0.5V at high currents while operating from a single low voltage supply that ranges from 1.65 to 5.5 volts. It also offers excellent precision and ultra-low dropout values of 500 mV under difficult circumstances. Microchip’s radiation-tolerant space-qualified microcontrollers, such as the SAM71Q21RT and PolarFire, have a corresponding power source solution in the form of the MIC69303RT RTPF500TLS and other FPGAs.
