Original Article Source Paper first-authored by engineering graduate student wins IEEE Outstanding Conference Paper Award As phones and other electronics shrink in size, they’ve grown in capabilities and ubiquitousness. But, as semiconductors – the omnipresent and indispensable building blocks of the electronics and computer industries – get to the 28 to 45 nanometer feature size...... KEEP READING

Original Article Source This week has seen an intense period of activity from the Sun, with four colossal solar flares in 24 hours. Here on Earth, such spectacular solar displays seem far enough away but in fact these extra-terrestrial events are a cause for concern in our modern digital world. Of concern are so called......

An Award-Worthy Look at Electronic Glitches Beginning in 1995 TRIUMF has built up several beam lines that provide low-intensity, energetic proton and neutron beams to simulate natural-radiation exposures either in space or terrestrial environments. Even at low intensity, a few minutes of exposure in these beams can correspond to years of operation in space, air,...... KEEP READING
