ABSTRACT
This article comprehensively analyzes soft-error sensitivity in modern systems and shows it to be application dependent. The discussion covers ground-level radiation mechanisms that have the most serious impact on circuit operation, along with the effect of technology scaling on soft-error rates in memory and logic.
INDEX TERMS
