Total Ionizing Dose and Dose Rate Effects on (Positive and Negative) BJT Based Bandgap References

Abstract 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 amounts of radiation a BGR needs to maintain its output voltage to enable the rest of the circuit to operate under proper condi... (more)
