Paper Abstract

The successful development of various electro-optical systems is highly dependent on precise electronic circuit design which must account for possible parameter drift in the various piece-parts. The utilization of a comprehensive computer analysis program (SYSCAP II) provides the electro-optical system designer and electro-optical management with a well-structured tool for a comprehensive circuit analysis. An overview of the SYSCAP II program is being presented with examples applicable to electro-optical design problems. In particular, the program has been used for extensive radiation effects predictions of semi-conductor response to various transient and permanent radiation effects. Worst-case, Monte Carlo, and component failure simulation (CFS) are discussed with respect to the electro-optical design challenges for the 1980s, including "design for producibility". The SYSCAP II program is provided through Control Data Corporation (CDC) with Rockwell International providing the technology under a licensing arrangement with Control Data Corporation. As a result, the techniques described in this paper can be readily used by the electro-optical design community.
