Soft errors due to cosmic radiations are the main reliabilit y threat during lifetime operation of digital systems. Fast and accurate estimation of soft error rate(SER) is essential in obtaining the reliability parameters of a digital system in order to balance reliability, performance, and co st f the system. Previous techniques for SER estimation are mainly based on fault injection and random simulations. In this paper, we present an analytical SER modeling technique for ASIC designs that can… CONTINUE READING
