— tutorials, alpha upset, materials selection, process control, case studies …

Date: Tuesday, November 7, 2017
Time: 8:30 am – 4:30 pm (Lunch will be provided)
Location: Xilinx, 2050 Logic Drive, San Jose CA (Map: goo.gl/maps/V7GpFxFH8u72)
Attendance: On-site or Remote (WebEx)

Sponsors: IEEE CPMT Santa Clara Valley (SCV) Chapter, and Xilinx; Juniper Networks; Cisco Systems.

Our annual IEEE Soft Error Rate Workshop will enter its 9th year! With our focus on alpha-induced soft errors and unique offering of simultaneous on-site and remote participation, we have provided opportunities for presentation and interactive discussion on a variety of critical subjects on SER for an ever-increasing international audience.
You are now invited to register for this year’s event. We will continue a format piloted last year: We have invited two industry experts in the field to offer tutorials on fundamentals of soft errors, and on experimental approaches.
— “Single Event Effects Tutorial” (Austin Lesea, Xilinx)
— “Probability and Statistics for Experimenters” (Gary Swift, Swift Engineering)
— “Practical Aspects of Realtime Testing” (Jeff Barton and Eric Crabill, Xilinx)
— “Assessment of Alpha Particle Susceptibility of Product Chips Through Accelerated Tests” (Paul Muller, IBM)
— “New High Energy Neutron Spallation Beam, ChipIr at Appleton-Reutherford Lab at Oxford” (Francis Classe, Cypress)
(one or two additional talks may be scheduled)
