Abstract: [Background] Bipolar junction transistors (BJTs) in spacecraft may be damaged by ionizing radiation.[Purpose] This study aims to investigate the dose rate effect and the radiation response of the voltage comparator.[Methods] Typical bipolar voltage comparators LM339 of the same batch produced by Texas Instruments (TI) are irradiated by 60Co-γ at high-and low-dose-rate under different bias conditions. Some parameters of the voltage comparator subjected to ionization radiation, such as input bias current, open loop gain and low-level output voltage, are observed. The changing law of sensitive parameters of voltage comparator and the concrete degradation mode in the circuit level are analyzed.[Results] The degradation in performance of voltage comparator corresponding to low rate dose irradiation exhibits more dramatically enhancement, i.e. enhanced low dose rate sensitivity.[Conclusions] The radiation response of the voltage comparator is severely affected by the bias conditions.
