We describe a test structure architecture that allows at-speed Single Event Effects (SEE) testing on embedded memory arrays. The at-speed test structure enables identification of Multiple Cell Upsets (MCU), Multiple Bit Upsets (MBU), persistent errors and transient errors. Error Detection and Correction (EDAC) can reduce the residual error rate due to SEU by multiple orders of magnitude. Consequently, careful testing of the at-speed test structure is essential to detect and quantify the risk of… Expand
