Moving Towards Embedded Circuits and Applications Resistant to Radiation

Many bugs in embedded systems are caused by environment fluctuations (temperature, pressure, EM field, etc.). In severe conditions (high altitude, space, nuclear sites etc.), high energy particles, particularly neutrons, are a major cause of errors, which can lead to transitional errors ("soft errors"), permanent failures or even the loss of components. Evaluation of sensitivity to radiation is therefore essential for the components and applications intended to be embedded in severe environments.
The teams at LSI will accompany you at each step of process for testing and improvement of the reliability of your integrated circuits.
