Technical Talk

IEEE Windsor Section presents “Radiation Hardened CMOS Circuits

Abstract: Soft errors have long plagued the semiconductor field, first showing up in space applications and later in terrestrial applications. Technology scaling and low-voltage/low-power requirements are further exacerbating the occurrence of soft errors in nano-scale circuits. A soft error occurs when charge generated by energetic particles is collected by reverse-biased junctions. In this talk, we will review the background and highlight recent research done at the University of Waterloo on circuit techniques to mitigate soft errors.

Speaker: Dr. Manoj Sachdev, Professor University of Waterloo
