Radiation resistance testing of COTS CMOS chips against continuous gamma radiations
Keywords and Phrases
Commercial-off-the-shelf components (COTS)
"Electronic components are used in natural radiation environment as well as in the ionizing radiation environment for research purposes. There are components available that are specifically manufactured for use in military and space applications to sustain high level of radiation. These components which are considered to be reliable for use in radiation environment are called "rad-hard components". In contrast to this there are commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components, which are readily and cheaply available but no specific effort is made to assure or even test the radiation resistance...This research thus proposes a risk management approach that can be followed in order to use COTS components in radiation environment."--Abstract, page iii.
