Impacts of transistor-level total ionizing dose are simulated on system-level parameters of a CubeSat computing board. Temperature control loop uncertainty quantification shows TID-induced changes as probability distributions of key system parameters versus mission time.

A temperature-switching irradiation (TSI) sequence based on first-principles understanding of interface-trap buildup and annealing is shown to be a conservative test for ELDRS at ultra­-low dose rate in linear bipolar devices.

A method is described for localizing damaged areas on IC chip using ionization response maps. The method can provide some essential information to IC designers to help them improve its resistance to failures.

A testing methodology for microcontrollers under radiation is proposed. General purpose benchmarks are reviewed, a neural network benchmark for loT-devices is introduced. The testing strategy is validated on ARM M0+/M4 microcontrollers under a 200MeV-proton beam.

We compare cross-sections predicted with software fault-injection and measured with neutron beam experiments of eight codes on two Arm devices. We improve predictions accuracy using performance and hardware utilization metrics.
