High performance, low-power, radiation hardened application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) are essential building blocks for advanced systems used in strategic space applications. BAE Systems in Manassas, VA has developed and demonstrated a comprehensive radiation hardened 150 nm standard cell digital ASIC design library. The library is used to configure ASIC designs built using the strategically radiation hardened fully-scaled 150 nm bulk CMOS process technology at the recently modernized foundry at BAE systems. This paper describes the radiation hardened standard cell ASIC design library, the characteristics of the underlying rad hard 150 nm CMOS process technology, and the ASIC product design flow.
