Logic soft errors are expected to contribute significantly towards overall soft-error failure-in-time (FIT) rates in the GHz frequency range. In this paper, the contribution of logic soft-errors, to the total soft error rate of circuits at the 28-nm technology node at high frequencies are quantified. Results suggest that the alpha particle logic soft error contribution to chip-level soft error rate is almost 50% at 0.5 GHz. The frequency threshold at which logic soft errors could exceed flip… CONTINUE READING
