Trojan Defense Uses Silvaco Tools to Develop Ionizing Radiation and Neutron Detector

Trojan Defense, a provider of systems solutions for radiation detection and communication tracking systems, has entered into a collaboration with Silvaco, a provider of circuit simulation, IC CAD and TCAD software tools, for development of the Carnyx ionizing radiation and neutron detector.

The Carnyx detector is Trojan Defense's embeddable sensor that has low-profile, and low-power features. It can be used in a wide range of applications, including nuclear medicine, civil engineering, oil and gas drilling, space exploration, nuclear dosimetry, and stand-off detection of Special Nuclear Materials (SNM).

A number of Silvaco's tools were used for prototyping the Carnyx detector. Silvaco automation solutions for device and design for simulating the effect of radiation on solid-state CMOS electronics were used. The collaboration made use of Silvaco's design tools for analog semiconductor processes. Silvaco Expert and SmartSpice tools were used to confirm that the target foundry will fabricate the sensor correctly. Trojan Defense used the tools for designing radiation softened circuits for increasing the sensitivity of radiation.

The Trojan Defense Carnyx ionizing radiation and neutron detector will facilitate the creation of a high-performance wireless detector network called the Global Neutron Grid (GNG). When nuclear materials of the weapons grade such as SNM get introduced into the supply chain, the grid will help detect the materials early. This warning will help in deterring hostile action of other countries.

The founder and CEO of Trojan Defense, Matthew Schor, stated that Silvaco's tools provided precise circuit simulations and the circuits performed as predicted after fabrication.
