In this paper, we propose a new approach for using Built-in Current Sensor (BICS) to detect not only transient upsets in sequential logic but also in combinational circuits. In this approach, the BICS is connected in the design bulk to increase its sensitivity to detect any current discrepancy that may occur during a charged particle strike. In addition,(More)
Radiation effects, like Single Event Transients (SET), are increasingly affecting integrated circuits as device dimensions are scaling down. With decreasing dimensions and supply voltages, the charge used to store information decreases, turning the circuits more sensitive to the transient currents generated by energetic particle hits. This is particularly(More)
