Providing a platform that simplifies the design process for space application, Atmel's new mixed-signal ATMX150RHA delivers up to 22 million routable gates, includes non-volatile memory blocks, flexible form factor with compiled SRAM and DPRAM blocks, and supports 2.5/3.3/5V and high-voltage (25-45-65V) I/Os with pre-qualified analog IP. This new flexible and highly integrated ASIC delivers an overall lower bill of materials for space applications. The ATMX150RHA ASIC platform is supported by a combination of state-of-art third-party and proprietary design tools including Synopsys, Mentor and Cadence.

Leveraging Atmel's nearly 30 years of flight heritage, the new ATMX150RHA integrates Atmel's proven rad-hard solution and offers a full service option for customers designing ASICs up to the qualified flight models. As previous Atmel ASIC platform generations, all ATMX150RHA products are fully designed, assembled, tested and qualified in Europe.

"With our long-standing flight heritage and more than 3,500 flight models delivered, we are a leading ASIC provider for space applications with proven, reliable solutions," said Patrick Sauvage, General Manager, Aerospace Business Unit, Atmel Corporation. "Atmel's ATMX150RHA ASIC adds to our proven aerospace portfolio, and delivers a fully integrated solution that allows aerospace designers a flexible, yet complete solution to help accelerate their space mission. The new ASIC is further testament to our aerospace leadership."
