Abstract:

The Parametric Analysis of Radiation effects software development is given the general title PARA. This report describes the development of algorithms and source codes for the simulation of radiation effects on CMOS ICs. The project concentrated on the simulation of total dose effects and the ways to establishpredict the operational lifetime and radiation tolerance of ICs. The switch level simulator incorporates the capability to assign bias dependent post-irradiation drive parameters to transistors within a microcircuit and to calculate propagation delays based on those parameters. This permits test vectors to be assigned based on worst case post-irradiation propagation delays.
