Space Microelectronics Volume 2: Integrated Circuit Design for Space Applications

Copyright: 2017
Pages: 720
ISBN: 9781630814694

eBook £212.00

This invaluable second volume of a two-volume set is filled with details about the integrated circuit design for space applications.  Various considerations for the selection and application of electronic components for designing spacecraft are discussed. The basic constructions of submicron transistors and schottky diodes during the technological process of production are explored.  This book provides details on the energy consumption minimization methods for microelectronic devices.


Specific topics include:


  • Features and physical mechanisms of the effect of space radiation on all the main classes of microcircuits, including peculiarities of radiation impact on submicron integrated circuits;
  • Special design, technology, and schematic methods of increasing the resistance to various types of space radiation;
  • Recommendations for choosing research equipment and methods for irradiating various samples;
  • Microcircuit designers on the composition of test elements for the study of the effect of radiation;
  • Microprocessors, circuit boards, logic microcircuits, digital, analog, digital–analog microcircuits manufactured in various technologies (bipolar, CMOS, BiCMOS, SOI);
  • Problems involved with designing high speed microelectronic devices and systems based on SOS-and SOI-structures;
  • System-on-chip and system-in-package and methods for rejection of silicon microcircuits with hidden defects during mass production.

Review by: V.A. Labunov, Coordination Center for the Research Technical Programs of the European Union - June 1, 2017

Reading this book was a pleasure, the title being of a full compliance with the contents. In my estimation, its merits can be attributed to inclusion of the extra materials on the causes of failures and accidents of rockets and satellites, noteworthy facts from the history of the space engineering development. I see it as the first ever fundamental work in the sphere of the space microelectronics, encompassing both the odd literature instances on the specific aspects of the space microelectronics and the vast personal experience of the authors, the recognized authorities in this sphere. By comparison with the Russian language edition the materials are superior structured, updated and more comprehensive. I am positive, that this book will be amid the contemporary selection of works of the technical science at a proper place.

Review by: M.V. Kovalchuk, Kurchatov Institute - June 1, 2017

Nowadays we witness the thriving development of the convergence process (merger, unification, inter-permeation) of a number of science disciplines, earlier advancing independently of each other. A vivid example can be seen in the telecommunications and information-communications technologies and systems on their basis emerged about ten years past in the result of convergence of two entirely diverse science directions – informatics and electrical communications. At present we are quite ready to amalgamate the existent technologies of microelectronics with the explored (structures of live nature) by means of convergence of nano-, bio-, info- and other spheres of knowledge.


The exact same phenomenon is also in evidence in the sphere of the space explorations, the objective manifestation of which is the arrival of this book, embracing within the span of three volumes the previously virtually distant science disciplines – technologies of the micro- and nano- electronics, microwave engineering, design development of the on-board electronic systems of space vehicles, methods for reliability enhancement and power saving on the spacecraft, physical influence mechanisms on the space vehicles and the on-board electronics by the high energy micro-particles, methods for safeguarding from the similar effects, technologies and materials for protection from the space radiation and electromagnetic irradiations and a great deal more. I strongly believe, that the book Space Microelectronics will go straight to the world contemporary literature of technical science.

Review by: Yu. Makarov, Roskosmos Federal Space Agency - June 1, 2017

The specialists and senior members of the divisions of the Federal Space Agency of the Russian Federation "Roskosmos" are well cognizant of and resort in their practical activities to the Russian language edition of the book by A. I. Belous, V. A. Solodukha, S. V. Shvedov Space Electronics. World print by the Artech House of the English language version of the book Space Microelectronics in three volumes, substantially renewed and expanded with the recent materials, will certainly evoke the interest of the English language and Russian specialists and managers in the space industry on a wider scale.
