should know About David Pauls


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…

Engineering Team

David Pauls

Junior Staff Engineer

David Pauls received his B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Lipscomb University in 2022. In the summers of 2019-2021, David worked as an Electrical Engineering Intern gaining broad industry experience. This included a summer at Jacobs Technology where David worked closely with the leading controls engineer on a large military contract designing multiple electrical systems alongside project management tasks such as budgeting and scheduling.

In 2021, David researched and initiated the development of a simulation tool for studying the effects of single event functional interrupts (SEFI) on the reliability of microprocessors at Vanderbilt University. During his senior year at Lipscomb University, David led a team of 8 students to compete in NASA’s Student Launch competition. For this project David managed the budget, schedule, and technical tasks necessary to design build and launch multiple rockets to place in the top 10 teams in the competition.

David joined Reliable MicroSystems in 2022 with a focus on developing radiation test chips for technology characterization in semiconductor nodes from 90nm to 14nm.
