What you
should know About Dr. Sean Vibbert


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…

Dr. Sean Vibbert

Staff Engineer

Sean Vibbert received his B.S in Electrical Engineering from the University of Evansville, Indiana in 2019. He received his M.S. and PhD in Electrical Engineering from Vanderbilt University in 2021 and 2023.

During his time at Vanderbilt University, he worked as a Research Assistant at the Institute for Space and Defense Electronics, where he led efforts to design, fabricate, and assess a novel on-chip photocurrent measurement circuit in two sub-50nm silicon-on-insulator technology processes.

He joined Reliable MicroSystems as a full-time engineer in 2023 and is stationed at the WestGate Design Support Center in Crane, Indiana.

Sean specializes in high-speed, mixed signal circuit design with an emphasis on photocurrent environment analysis. He is experienced at performing ASIC testing evaluations at radiation test facilities, including heavy ion, pulsed-laser, flash x-ray, and linear accelerator sources.
