This paper presents the PROMISE project, that
stands for PROgrammable MIxed Signal Electronics. The
project has received funding from the European Union’s
Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant
agreement No 870358. It’s tailored to bring to the space
community a flexible mixed-signal ASIC architecture design
ecosystem built on a portfolio of silicon qualified hardened IP
blocks. It includes analogue IPs such as ADC, DAC, PLL,
LDO, BG, LO, POR and HV MOS transistors. A digital
embedded FPGA core will provide a flexible programmable
element and an NVM will permit reconfiguration abilities
without the need of using an external memory.
All these elements will be included on a PILOT Circuit
ASIC that will be submitted to electrical validation and
radiation testing as part of the qualification process of these
basic elements for their future use as building blocks.
