In this paper, we propose a technique for the detection of neutrons that relies on the sensitivity of SRAM cells to particle radiation. In particular, we introduce a system based on a memory test bench that records the neutron reactions in the memory array. This system allows a good flexibility from different points of view. It is conceived to be modular,(More)
In the early 1990s, active power devices have been shown to be susceptible to radiation-induced failures. Many studies have been focused on cosmic ray-induced power device failures, including even IGBT failures. Till the end of the 1990s, IGBT technologies were susceptible to static or dynamic latch-up, which are respectively occurring in their forward(More)
Due to cosmic rays, electronic devices such as SRAM may undergo some dysfunctions such as single event upsets also called Soft errors. A crucial issue for aerospace applications is to be able to predict the Soft Error rate of a given device in a given environment. In this work, we present a predictive tool which deals with protons and heavy ions for space(More)
