Testing and Qualifying Linear Integrated Circuits for Radiation Degradation in SpaceThis paper discusses mechanisms and circuit-related factors that affect the degradation of linear integrated circuits from radiation in space. For some circuits there is sufficient degradation to affect performance at total dose levels below 4 krad(Si) because the circuit design techniques require higher gain for the pnp transistors that are the most sensitive to radiation. Qualification methods are recommended that include displacement damage as well as ionization damage.
