Abstract

Proton-induced single-event effects hardness assurance guidelines are developed to address issues raised by recent test results in advanced IC technologies for use in space environments. Specifically, guidelines are developed that address the effects of proton energy and angle of incidence on single-event latchup and the effects of total dose on single-event upset. The guidelines address both single-event upset (SEU), single-event latchup (SEL), and combined SEU and total ionizing dose (TID) effects.
