VORAGO's Patented Technology: HARDSIL®

The HARDSIL® Solution

Harden any CMOS device against the effects of extreme temperature or radiation. No longer be constrained by a limited pool of existing components for your design.

HARDSIL is a cost-effective modification to commercial CMOS process flows that can be implemented quickly with minimal incremental mask and implant steps. VORAGO have developed multiple products using HARDSIL and it has been used under license by other leading semiconductor suppliers.
