SEL Hardness Assurance in a Mixed Radiation Field / Garcia Alia, Ruben (CERN) ; Brugger, Markus (CERN) ; Danzeca, Salvatore (CERN) ; Ferlet-Cavrois, Veronique (Rutherford Appleton Laboratory) ; Frost, Christopher (Consultant in St Arnoult France) ; Gaillard, Remi ; Mekki, Julien (Centre Spatial de Toulouse (FR)) ; Saigné, Frédéric (Institut d'Electronique du Sud, Université de Montpellier) ; Thornton, Adam (University of Surrey (GB)) ; Uznanski, Slawosz (CERN) et al.
This paper explores the relationship between monoenergetic and mixed-field Single Event Latchup (SEL) cross sections, concluding for components with a very strong energy dependence and highly-energetic environments, test results from monoenergetic or soft mixed-field spectra can significantly underestimate the operational failure rate.
