Conventional Integrated Circuits (IC) are highly sensitive to radiation effects and can operate only in environments with a very low level of radiation. High radiation environments such as space need custom-designed ICs with dedicated radiation-hardened architectures. Our research is focused on the development and test of radiation-hardened ICs in nanoscale and ultra-low-power semiconductor technologies for high radiation environments such as in space and particle physics experiments. The University of Melbourne and Ansto developed a strategic collaboration to enable the ANSTO's heavy ion microprobe beamline for radiation test of custom-designed ICs for space applications. In our presentation, we provide an overview of our collaboration outcome and our roadmap for further developments in future. © 2021 The Authors
