UTMC Microelectronic Systems has developed two minimally invasive radiation tolerant modules (RTMs) to harden a commercial CMOS process. The RTMs were successfully inserted into three commercial foundries. The results of UTMC's hardening effort clearly demonstrate that a total dose hardness of between 100 to 500 krad (SiO2) can be achieved on a commercial CMOS process without significantly altering the commercial flow. This hardness level is from an initial set of experiments. Response factors from this first set of experiments have been identified which, when fully optimized, may increase the final total dose hardness level significantly
