Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Soft errors in logic circuits due to the propagation of erroneous signal caused by ionized particle generated by cosmic neutrons, which is called Single Event Transient (SET), might degrade reliability of future LSIs. A calculation model for estimating SET pulse width observed in inverter cells is proposed, which utilizes waveform of charge collection current obtained for single MOSFET structure. This method does not require SPICE, and a small number of TCAD calculations that should be performed beforehand to store current waveforms is sufficient. Calculated pulse widths agree well with those obtained by mixed-mode TCAD simulations, in general. This method is applied to calculation of distribution of SET pulse generation rate, and to evaluation of error rate in chip level, and it is predicted that some remedies for logic soft errors might be necessary around 40nm node for applications that requires high reliability.
