How We Test Xilinx Parts

  • For Packaging Induced Alpha Particles

    • Accelerated sources are readily available (calibrated 232Th foil)

    • A source foil has been acquired by the reliability group

    • Virtex-II testing is being initiated for package induced alphas

    • Testing on Virtex and Virtex-E was done previously by Novus

  • For Atmospheric Neutrons

    • We use the natural radiation environment around us

    • Acceleration is possible only by increasing the altitude of the test

    • Due to low rates, large number of devices are required

    • Testing times are long (many months)

    • Acceleration (10-100X) is possible by testing at altitude(s)

    • However, this test is the ultimate correlation for all other accelerated tests
