Description

We present the results of irradiation tests of a 0.13um test chip containing ATLAS pixel analog front end circuits and various types of memory cells. The irradiations were carried out at the LBNL 88” cyclotron with 50 MeV/c protons and 16 MeV/c light ions for SEU studies. The front end circuits perform well up to the highest dose achieved at the moment, which is 1E15 p/cm^2. The linear energy transfer (LET) thresholds have been measured for SEU in five different latch structures. We plan to increase the radiation dose to 1E16 p/cm^2.
