Abstract : This report summarizes the design and development of a radiation-hardened Photodetector circuit using the dielectrically-hardened linear semiconductor process and consisting of a photo diode chip and preamplifier chip. The Photodetector circuit has been developed for use in the Dormant Inertial Navigation System (DINS). The device is a dual detector/amplifier which detects ring laser gyro optical signals (6328A). The report includes data derived from functional evaluation, samples of the photodiode and preamplifier stage chips. (Author)
