Abstract

This paper proposes a technique to build SPICE micromodels of integrated circuits in bipolar technology appropriate to simulate single event transients. First of all, we will show how to obtain SPICE models of the internal transistors from texts in the scientific and academic literature. Next, several strategies to figure out the internal structure of the integrated circuits and bias point will be shown. Finally, simulation results will be compared to data issue from experiments, either performed by the authors or by other researchers. As the simulations do not require expensive software or hardware, this paper can be a start point for research groups with small budget or for academic purposes at universities.
