SEU Concept to Reality (Allocation, Prediction, Mitigation)

by Bidokhti, Nematollah ;

SEUs are caused by either atmospheric neutrons or alpha particles emitted by trace impurities in the silicon processing and packaging materials. SEUs could cause single or multiple bit errors in the components such as ASCIs,FPGAs, processors and memories...

Reliability and Sensitivity Analysis of Imperfect Coverage Multi-State Systems

by Xing, Liudong ; Shrestha, Akhilesh ; Amari, Suprasad V. ;

This paper demonstrates how to analyze the reliability of a system that can have multiple operating states (determined by the failures of subsystems) including situations where total system failure occurs due to undetected failure of recovery subsystems...
