Moore’s Law and Radiation Effects on Microelectronics


52 years ago Gordon Moore postulated that the number of components in an integrated circuit would double every 1-2 years.  Transistor dimensions have decreased from tens of microns to 10 nanometers over this time period. In this presentation, we will examine the effects of Moore’s Law size and voltage scaling of transistors and integrated circuits on the vulnerability of microelectronics to ionizing radiation effects in near-Earth space and terrestrial applications.  We will also discuss limitations that these vulnerabilities place on future highly-scaled integrated circuit technologies.
