ASU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This collection includes most of the ASU Theses and Dissertations from 2011 to present. ASU Theses and Dissertations are available in downloadable PDF format; however, a small percentage of items are under embargo. Information about the dissertations/theses includes degree information, committee members, an abstract, supporting data or media.

In addition to the electronic theses found in the ASU Digital Repository, ASU Theses and Dissertations can be found in the ASU Library Catalog.

Dissertations and Theses granted by Arizona State University are archived and made available through a joint effort of the ASU Graduate College and the ASU Libraries.

Space exploration is a large field that requires high performing circuitry due to the harsh environment. Within a space environment one of the biggest factors leading to circuit failure is radiation. Circuits must be robust enough to continue operation after being exposed to the high doses of radiation. Bandgap reference (BGR) circuits are designed to be voltage references that stay stable across a wide range of supply voltages and temperatures. A bandgap reference is a piece of a large circuit that supplies critical elements of the large circuit with a constant voltage. When used in a space environment with large …
