Pagination or Media Count:
The purpose of this research project was to explore a variety of commercially available electronic parts and then to expose these devices to radiation sources to discover what effects various radiation sources had on the systems total ionizing dose capability. The team at the University of New Mexico s COSMIAC Center performed radiation testing on a series of operational amplifiers, microcontrollers and microprocessor. The microprocessors tested include the popular PSOC, MSP430 and Beagle Bone Black platforms. While the MSP430 and Beagle Bone Black had excellent results, the PSOC proved unreliable for space applications.
