What you
should know About Andrew Aaron


In extreme environments, as expected in earth orbit, exploratory space, or even in the specialized environments of nuclear reactors or nuclear weapons, microelectronic circuitry must endure a host of radiation hazards…
The creation of soft errors due to the propagation of single event transients (SETs) is a significant reliability challenge in modern CMOS logic. SET concerns continue to be exacerbated by Moore’s Law technology scaling…
This paper discusses several attributes of integrated circuit scaling in relation to radiation soft error failure modes and vulnerability.
Physical mechanisms responsible for nondestructive single-event effects in digital microelectronics are reviewed, concentrating on silicon MOS devices and integrated circuits…

Andrew Aaron

Staff Engineer

Andrew Aaron earned his B.S. in Computer Engineering from the United States Naval Academy in 2012. He was commissioned and served 8 years in the United States Navy, most recently as a Weapons System Officer in the F/A-18F and deployed on the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71). While waiting to start flight training, he worked as an intern with the Naval Postgraduate School Electrical Engineering department where he worked on a project to add triple modular redundancy to an FPGA for the school’s space satellite program. Andrew concluded his active- duty time in the Navy as a Lieutenant in 2020 and is currently pursuing his Masters in the Electrical Engineering at Vanderbilt University, where he works as a Research Assistant with the Institute of Space and Defense Electronics (ISDE). His research at Vanderbilt includes testing radiation effects on carbon nanotube field effect transistors (CNTFETs).
