Radiation Test Workshop Seville Spain Alter Technology

RADECS Thematic Workshop: EEE Components Radiation Testing

The radiation testing on EEE components is a key recurrent activity, routinely performed during the parts procurement and evaluation, but under continuous discussion due to a number of factors:

  • The lack of standards or some insufficiently harmonized test requirements.
  • Frequent problems: test lead time and cost, radiation source availability, test results correlation, identifying device failure modes, etc.
  • New challenges: understanding the radiation behaviour of new materials (CSi, GaN, SiGe,…), higher device complexity, difficulties derived from lower device technology visibility, etc.

To discuss all these issues, a thematic workshop will take place on the 31st of March and the 1st of April 2016 in Seville, Spain.

Radiation Test Workshop Outcome & Figures

1st April 2016, the Radiation Test workshop was ended with an overall satisfactory result. We thank to all the speakers, attendees and organizers which make this event possible and fruitful, producing enriching sessions and the right environment to make easier discussions and technical interchanges.

  • Attendees:

After 116 on-line registrations, 104 were confirmed at the registration desk, coming from twelve different countries: Spain, France, China, Russia, Germany, Switzerland, Italy,…, and with representatives from well-known companies and institutions: ESA, CNES, CERN, TAS, AIRBUS D, TESAT, TRAD, MIER, INTA, CSIC,…., etc.

We want to specially thanks people from far away locations (Japan, China, Russia,…, etc.), which made long trips to attend our Radiation Test workshop event.

The attendee breakdown by country was:

  • Technical sessions:

The workshop technical content was split in 6 sessions, with an average of four talks each. A total of 24 presentations were scheduled. Two of them were not finally orally presented, but the presentations materials are available, and they are also uploaded.

  • Other workshop elements:

Coffees and lunches were served at CNA lobby, providing the time and the room to discuss the presented topics and other related subjects. In addition, a social dinner was offered in the Guadalquivir riverside, which was very well attended, and it was a perfect complement to the workshop.


Finally, a set of technical visits were organized to ALTER/CNA facilities Friday afternoon. More than 60 people expressed interest, and the visits were conducted in different groups trough diverse laboratories and facilities, with constructive technical discussions.
