RHbD is the way to go for the development of mixed signal ICs for harsh environments, reducing development cost and time to market. Space applications are the most demanding as TID, Proton and heavy ion bombardments happen simultaneously often combined with (ultra) low-temperature operation. In the talk we will present solutions to overcome TID effects such as H-gate design, donut transistors and DTI. For SEE we will mainly focus on DICE and triple redundancy to avoid SEU and SEFI’s. The effects of these measures will be illustrated using AD converter and memory operation.
