AbstractRobust Chip (RCI) and Vanderbilt University (Vanderbilt) propose a joint project to create and characterize a comprehensive, accurate, single event simulation solution for ultra scaled (45nm, 32nm, and below) CMOS technologies. The project focus is on developing a production strength single event analysis solution for 45nm, 28nm and 22nm CMOS, building on the most advanced single event characterization software available. Additional work on layout implementation and novel layout methodologies, will guide the development of the software solution both for qualification and calibration purposes, and for guidance on and adaption to, important target applications. The key innovations behind the technology in this project, the layout technology LEAP, and the new simulation methodology in accuro, originate in earlier DTRA and DARPA sponsored projects.
