SEU sensitivity and modeling using pico-second pulsed laser stimulation of a D Flip-Flop in 40 nm CMOS technology

Abstract : This paper presents the design of D Flip-Flop cell and reports the laser fault sensitivity mapping both with experiments and simulation results. Theses studies are driven by the need to propose a simulation methodology based on laser/silicon interactions with a complex integrated circuit. In the security field, it is therefore mandatory to understand the behavior of sensible devices like D Flip-Flops to laser stimulation. In previous works, Roscian et al., Sarafianos et al., Lacruche et al. or Courbon et al. studied the relations between the layout of cells, its different laser-sensitive areas and their associated fault model using laser pulse duration in the nanosecond range. In this paper, we report similar experiments carried out using shorter laser pulse duration (30 ps instead of 50 ns). We also propose an upgrade of the simulation model they used to take into account laser pulse durations in the picosecond range on a logic gate composed by a large number of transistors for a recent CMOS technology (40 nm).
