This e-book makes a speciality of the layout of a Mega-Gray (a average unit of overall ionizing radiation) radiation-tolerant ps-resolution time-to-digital converter (TDC) for a mild detection and varying (LIDAR) method utilized in a gamma-radiation setting. a number of radiation-hardened-by-design (RHBD) strategies are established in the course of the layout of the TDC and different circuit options to enhance the TDC's answer in a harsh atmosphere also are investigated. Readers can study from scratch how one can layout a radiation-tolerant IC. information about radiation results, radiation-hardened layout options and  measurements are equipped in one of these method that readers can simply achieve a radical knowing of the subject. Readers also will study the layout idea at the back of the newly proposed delta-sigma TDC. Readers can quick gather wisdom in regards to the layout of radiation-hardened bandgap voltage references and low-jitter leisure oscillators, that are brought within the content material from a designer's perspective.


·         Discusses very important facets of radiation-tolerant analog IC layout, together with lifelike functions and radiation results on ICs;

·         Demonstrates radiation-hardened-by-design strategies via a design-test-radiation review practice;

·         Describes a brand new kind of Time-to-Digital (TDC) converter designed for radiation-tolerant application;

·         Explains the layout and dimension of all useful blocks (e.g., bandgap reference, rest oscillator) within the TDC.
