Ionizing Radiation results in Electronics: From thoughts to Imagers provides complete insurance of the consequences of ionizing radiation on cutting-edge semiconductor units. The ebook additionally deals invaluable perception into glossy radiation-hardening techniques.
The textual content starts via supplying very important heritage info on radiation results, their underlying mechanisms, and using Monte Carlo concepts to simulate radiation delivery and the results of radiation on electronics. The publication then:
- Explains the consequences of radiation on electronic advertisement units, together with microprocessors and risky and nonvolatile memories—static random-access thoughts (SRAMs), dynamic random-access thoughts (DRAMs), and Flash memories
- Examines concerns like delicate mistakes, overall dose, and displacement harm, including hardening-by-design ideas for electronic circuits, field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), and mixed-analog circuits
- Explores the results of radiation on fiber optics and imager units akin to complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) sensors and charge-coupled units (CCDs)
Featuring real-world examples, case experiences, large references, and contributions from prime specialists in and academia, Ionizing Radiation results in Electronics: From stories to Imagers is appropriate either for novices who are looking to familiarize yourself with radiation results and for radiation specialists who're trying to find extra complex fabric or to make powerful use of beam time.
