VORAGO Technologies Receives NASA SBIR Award for Latch-up Protection IC
AUSTIN, Texas - Aug. 14, 2019 - PRLog -- VORAGO Technologies, a leading provider of radiation-hardened space electronics technology, has been awarded a NASA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I grant by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
The new project to create a radiation-hardened Latch-up protection IC is consistent with VORAGO's technology expertise and commercial objectives. The project addresses NASA's requirement for state-of-the-
Latch-up is a serious condition that can disrupt operation or destroy commercial integrated circuits that are exposed to space radiation. VORAGO integrated circuits are manufactured using HARDSIL®technology that immunizes them against ionizing radiation and thus makes them suitable to protect less robust devices that are not as effective at mitigating against space radiation effects.
"Designers of space electronics systems sometimes have no choice but to use non-radiation hardened components that present a serious risk of latching-up,"
