We have presented the architecture, simulation, packaging, and over-temperature and radiation testing of a complex, 16-channel, extreme environment capable, SiGe Remote Electronics Unit containing the Remote Sensor Interface ASIC that can serve a wide variety of space-relevant needs as designed. These include future missions to the Moon and Mars, with the additional potential to operate in other hostile environments, including lunar craters and around the Jovian moon, Europa. We have expanded on the previous introduction of the RSI to show the validity of the chip design and performance over an almost 250 K temperature range, down to 100 K, under 100 krad TID radiation exposure, with SEL immunity and operability in a high-flux SET environment.
