Space Series IV: Understanding cosmic radiation effects on electronics
One of the biggest challenges of using electronics in space applications is that integrated circuits are generally not tolerant to cosmic radiation. There are various types of radiation effects that impacts integrated circuits’ functionality, performance and life. In this webinar session we will discuss those effects and compare space rated and commercial off the shelf (COTS) devices.
Upon completion, you will understand:
- Destructive radiation effects such as TID, SEL, SEGBR and Displacement Damage
- Non-destructive radiation effects such as SET, SEFI and SEU
- Risks of using COTS devices for space applications and their impact on quality & performance
- Radiation misconceptions related to EPI, SOI and datecode
