Paper Abstract

To develop more cost-effective future satellites and spacecraft systems, instruments and avionics are evolving into smaller/lighter-weight and more power efficient modules. NASA's future missions will require that these lighter weight systems have smaller shielding mass margins and operate at cryogenics temperatures in stressing radiation. JPL has been exploring several approaches to improving the radiation performance of CMOS Active Pixel Sensor (APS) imagers for ultra-low power,
