Failures in Aerospace Applications

morreale Sunday 08 of June, 2014
Paolo Scalisi has a five part series of articles on the Failures in Aerospace Applications on the Analog Planet website. The articles cover
  • SEL (single event latchup)
  • SEU (single event upset)
  • SET (single event transient)
  • SEB (single event burnout)
  • SEFI (single event functional interrupt)
  • SEGR (single event gate rupture)

Graphene FET Layout Editor Tutorial

morreale Saturday 31 of May, 2014
I've posted eight videos on Youtube detailing how to layout graphene FETs on a purchased graphene wafer using Layout Editor. The tutorial videos include an
  • Introduction of what is to be build and describes the design rules
  • How to setup and configure Layout Editor
  • Die plan
  • Make a Graphene FET
  • Make a Hall Bar
  • Make a van der Pauw structure
  • Make a Contact Resistance measurement structure
  • How to layout a Die

The videos have been submitted to the the Photomask Portal Layout Editor tutorial contest. My introduction slides are available now too.

Update 6/8/14: Photomask Portal announced that my videos won the contest!
