Virtex-II - Does power consumption increase with radiation?

Description

Urgency: Low 

 

Description: 

Power consumption is susceptible to increase with time due to radiation exposure. How do you account for this in FPGAs ?

Solution

The power consumption should not increase appreciably within the radiation exposure limit (Total Ionizing Dose limit) for our devices.  

 

You can find the TID limit in the data sheet for the QPro-R devices:

The TID is measured only for the QPro-R devices.
