The Platform for Advanced Characterisation - Grenoble (PAC-G) supports Industrial companies such as Airbus in the qualification of electronic components. For instance, PAC-G helps investigate the threat of the thermal neutrons induced SEU rate at ground level and at aircraft altitudes.
The PAC-G offer an easy access to two high quality neutron facilities dedicated to neutron-induced Single Event Effects (SEE) tests. Fast and Thermal neutron tests are required to assess the reliability of highly integrated devices for critical applications; high energy neutrons can in addition help to prepare proton and heavy ion tests. The PAC-G allows you to have access, on the same site, to a broad spectrum of neutron energies from fast to thermal neutrons (14 MeV, 2.5 MeV and 25 meV).
