[PCG31-20] Miniaturization of plasma wave instruments and its perspective towards future space missions
Keywords:Plasma wave, ASIC
We have been attempting the miniaturization of plasma wave instruments using mixed signal ASIC technology. We have already succeeded in realizing six channels of waveform capture receiver inside the chip with the size of 5mm times 5mm. We also realized the preamp chip for magnetic sensors. Furthermore, this ASIC technology leads to the consolidation of the digital part and analogue part of plasma wave receivers. This means that the whole plasma wave receiver system will be installed inside a one chip. In the present paper, we will introduce our attempt of the miniaturization of plasma wave receiver using the ASIC and show you the perspective using the miniaturized plasma wave receiver.
