SPACE

Our hunger for exploring space is exponentially driving the need for clever IC solutions.

LOOKING FOR SMALLER, MORE RELIABLE AND MORE ENERGY-EFFICIENT IC DESIGNS?

space-industries-custom-IC-design-solutions

Space puts extraordinary and extreme operating requirements upon semiconductor circuits. Extreme temperature variations, mechanical stress, high G and radiation exposure create a very extra-ordinarily hostile environment. That, combined with the almost impossible in-service repairs on operating systems, implies that the key factor in selection of components  for space applications are high reliability and space heritage.

SystematIC is specialized in designing high reliability ASICs and analog electronics systems for space applications to exacting standards. These ASICs are dedicated for systems like satellite navigation and propulsion. Our customers require constant improvements in size, weight, power, performance, bandwidths, operational frequencies, payload flexibility and  reliability.

Lower your research costs and risks

HARSH ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS

The demands placed on a rocket and its payload during launch are severe. Extreme vibrations, pyroshock, contamination from outgassing that degrades performance of the optical devices, electrostatic discharge. But that is not the only hurdle to overcome. Extreme temperature fluctuation for example, during lunar day and night, the temperature on the surface of the Moon can vary from around –200°C to +200°C. The accuracy and life expectancy of electronic devices are severely degraded by sustained high temperatures.

RADIATION EFFECTS

The radiation effects on electronic devices are a primary concern for space level applications. Outside the protective cover of the Earth’s atmosphere, the solar system is filled with radiation. The natural space radiation environment can damage electronic devices and the effects range from a degradation in parametric performance to a complete functional failure. These effects can result in reduced mission lifetime and major satellite system failures.

TECHNOLOGY TRENDS

In terms of the big communication and scientific satellite payloads, instruments are becoming more complex. A similar trend is found in the very small satellites, where microelectronics offer similar technologies at orders lower cost. New missions with swarms of small satellites appear that operate as a system. SystematIC's micro electronic technologies are compatible with this trend.

Custom ASIC Design

Custom ASIC Design

SystematIC , as its name suggests, draws its strength from a systematic development methodology and a profound knowledgebase which it applies to practical implementation of every analog and mixed signal ASIC it develops. Thanks to the ‘SystematIC’ methodologies, a fully functional, on-spec first silicon is attainable with minimum number of design iterations and significantly reduced overall development cost and time-to-market.

EXPERTISES

SYSTEMATIC WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH A FAST, HONEST AND OPTIMAL IC SOLUTION

High reliability and devices with space heritage are key factors in the selection of components for space level applications. Spacecraft designers are being pressed to use commercial devices in order to meet high levels of performance in increasingly smaller, lower power, and lower cost spacecraft.

Proof that it is the optimal solution 
We have a world-class track record in high voltage, power and sensor technology and advanced signal processing.

First time functional
Understanding model accuracy, component mismatch and process corner variations helps to make robust circuit designs. The time and attention that we invest in the first design is until now in most cases rewarded with fully functional first silicon.

Fast delivery 
Time to market is an extremely important aspect in many electronic developments. The best strategy is getting the most out of the first silicon. The risk in a second run, if needed, should be minimal. Therefore it is important to acknowledge and address potential risks and uncertainties in a first IC/product design as early as possible.

"WE GO WHERE NOBODY HAS GONE BEFORE"

At SystematIC we are fascinated about IC design. We are persons that want to know how things work and when we actually do we love the challenge of building new things with it. And this is not based on just a lucky guess but we work in a structured way to get optimal results.

You can proof that what you do is  good or even ultimate (within the limitations of physics and mathematics). It's all about capturing what you need and use the tools that are available to actually make it. Understanding the possibilities and challenges of integrated circuit design as well as the customer requirements are key to a successful project. That is why we are fast. In an early stage we try to capture the key questions and solve these on high level.

That way we know it will work before we start detailed design and can provide our customers with the best value in both quality of design and in design time.

SOME OF OUR CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONS IN THE SPACE INDUSTRIES

Our product portfolio includes ICs for power management and interface applications. Our products are subject to comprehensive testing and qualifications to meet the quality expectations of space customers.

ELECTRIC PROPULSION

State-of-the-art electric propulsion (EP) systems used in satellites exhibit impressive performance, but the used technologies cannot be scaled down in size and power whilst retaining system performance. So there are no conventional technologies for propulsion for the upcoming micro- and nano-satellite market. SystematIC partners in the European HiperLoc-EP project which aims to use a novel approach to develop an Electrospray Colloid Electric Propulsion System (ECEPS) suitable for small (cubesat) form factors. SystematIC develops the miniaturized Power Processing Unit for such a small form-factor electric propulsion system, achieving all required performance parameters, including a good power conversion efficiency and accuracy of the ultra high-voltage control.

WONDERING WHAT REALLY SETS SYSTEMATIC APART?
