Digitally intensive DC-DC converter for extreme space environments

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Digitally intensive DC-DC converter for extreme space environments
The Space Micro –Arizona State University (ASU) team will develop an all-digitally controlled, wide temperature range point-of-load switch-mode DC-DC regulator core with built-in self-test (BIST) functionality which meets space radiation requirements. In Phase I we will produce a design that can be fabricated into silicon in Phase II and demonstrate aspects of the design in the laboratory with some preexisting silicon circuits and discrete components. A competitive analysis below depicts the product advantages of our proposed device. These translate into substantial benefits to NASA in extreme temperature (and radiation) environments. More »
