The purpose of this workshop is to provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of recent advances in analogue and mixed-signal VLSI design techniques and technologies for space applications.


  • Radiation Effects on analogue and mixed-signal ICs

  • Methodologies for Radiation Hardening on analogue circuits at cell level, circuit level, and system design level

  • Radiation Hardened Technologies for analogue ICs

  • Radiation tests of analogue and mixed-signal ICs

  • Qualifying and quantifying radiation hardness of analogue circuits

  • Space Applications for analogue and mixed-Signal ASICs

  • analogue intellectual property and reusability of analogue circuits in space

  • In-orbit Experiences and Flight Heritage of analogue and Mixed-Signal ICs

  • Needs and Requirements for analogue and Mixed-Signal ICs in Future Space Missions

Presentation Guidelines

General guidelines which apply for the presentations at AMICSA 2014:
  • Your presentation should be uploaded to the Indico Timetable ("add link") at least 15 minutes before the session starts.

  • It is recommended to have your presentation available on a USB stick as well. Just in case...

  • The organizer will not provide printed "hand-outs" of your actual presentation.
