Abstract:

Results of pulsed-power burnout testing the Fairchild 9046 quad dual-input nand gate and the Amelco 6041 three-input nand gate showed the circuits to be vulnerable to junction burnout for pulses of less than 100 V and pulse widths on the order of 100 nsec. Calculations based on Wunsch-Bell junction burnout theory showed good agreement with the experimental results. Sample calculations applying Wunsch-Bell theory to integrated circuits are given.
