This paper presents a multiple-configuration IC that implements a number of sequential or combinatorial logic functions for extreme environment electronics. Operating temperature is −55°C to +300°C. Combinatorial functions include AND, OR, XOR, muxes, bi-directional transceiver, priority-encoder, magnitude comparator, etc. Sequential functions include 8-bit DFF, counter, latch, programmable clock-divider, etc. The majority of 7400 logic parts are covered by this part. Special test circuitry is included for in-situ monitoring of the part during production. Endurance testing and monitoring of part lifetime at elevated stress temperature (+350°C) is also built-in.
