We present experimental evidence of single-event upsets in 28 and 45 nm CMOS SRAMs produced by single energetic electrons. Upsets are observed within 10% of nominal supply voltage for devices built in the 28 nm technology node. Simulation results provide supporting evidence that upsets are produced by energetic electrons generated by incident X-rays. The observed errors are shown not to be the result of “weak bits” or photocurrents resulting from the collective energy deposition from X-rays… CONTINUE READING
