Subject: Cosmic Radiation Effects on Components
Have there been any studies or analyses on the effects of cosmic radiation on electronic components being flown at altitude? I have a system that will be flown between 45K & 50K feet comprising COTS/NDI equipment. I am particularly interested in processor and memory devices. However, any information with respect to cosmic radiation exposure and the effects on life expectancy or reliability would be appreciated.
