Développement de circuits logiques programmables résistants aux aléas logiques en technologie CMOS submicrométrique

Abstract : The electronics associated to the particle detectors of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), under construction at CERN, will operate in a very harsh radiation environment. Most of the microelectronics components developed for the first generation of LHC experiments have been designed with very precise experiment-specific goals and are hardly adaptable to other applications. Commercial On-The-Shelf (COTS) components cannot be used in the vicinity of particle collision due to their poor radiation tolerance. This thesis is a contribution to the effort to cover the need for radiation-tolerant SEU-robust programmable components for application in High Energy Physics (HEP) experiments. Two components are under development: a Programmable Logic Device (PLD) and a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). The PLD is a fuse-based, 10-input, 8-I/O general architecture device in 0.25 μm CMOS technology. The FPGA under development is instead a 32 × 32 logic block array, equivalent to ~25k gates, in 0.13 μm CMOS. This work focussed also on the research for an SEU-robust register in both the mentioned technologies. The SEU-robust register is employed as a user data flip-flop in the FPGA and PLD designs and as a configuration cell as well in the FPGA design.
