Numerous ESA programs and RD activities associated with EEE components require irradiation testing of these in the frame of hardening, development, evaluation and qualification activities. To reduce cost and increase efficiency, it is necessary to coordinate (consolidate) such radiation test work. Additionally, there is a strong need to provide independent radiation characterisation data on EEE components developed by ESA. Several standard ASICs have been developed (), but limited or no radiation data is available. Radiation assessment is either based on ASIC technology evaluation (CCSDS) or by similarity (Space wire). However, Single Event Effect (SEE) sensitivity is often design dependent and an assessment based on a simple test vehicle or by similarity is not sufficient. Also radiation testing is part of the evaluation of part considered for a space application (e.g. LVDS, CAN transceiver,..). In this activity, key components and technologies shall be identified and submitted radiation tests (Total Ionizing Dose (TID), Total Non-Ionizing Dose (TNID), SEE). Procurement Policy: C(1) = Activity restricted to non-prime contractors (incl. SMEs).
