Functional safety is arguably the most critical factor when it comes to developing automobiles where safety is a top priority, and it has become even more important with the introduction of driver assistance or automatic driving systems. In line with these trends, ISO 26262, an international standard for functional safety of electrical and electronic systems in automobiles, was first established in 2011. While the standard has been applied to automobile development by major OEMs around the world since then, there has been a rising demand in the market to reflect additional technical characteristics in the existing standard. There have particularly been a number of problems in applying the standard to the development of semiconductor components, as semiconductor manufacturers lacked the proper understanding of functional safety of automobiles. In order to address this, a revised standard was announced at the end of 2018 after being worked on for four years.
In this presentation, Dr. Kih discusses the changes observed in the 2nd edition of ISO 26262 and their significance. What is particularly notable is that Part 11 was added to the revised edition under the title, “Guidelines on application of ISO 26262 to semiconductors.” The concepts, safety analysis, failure mode, failure rate estimation, etc. necessary for developing semiconductor components in consideration of functional safety are described in the added part, and Dr. Kih goes over them and discusses the foreseeable issues in his presentation.

1. FINFET, boasting low power consumption and outstanding performance, is rapidly replacing the conventional planar type MOSFETs in consumer applications in the electronics industry. Some studies have shown that FINFETs may be more resistant against the total ionization dose (TID) effect, as the effect of charge trapping on buried oxide (BOX) is negligible due to excellent electrostatic control by the gate. Plus, FINFET can reduce single event effects (SEE) as a result of reduced charge collection by its thin body. Nevertheless, even though the FINFET has a narrow fin structure, the severity of the TID effect on the short channel structure has been report. Also, in the case of SOI FINFET with a floating body, a single event transient (SET) caused by parasitic polar amplification due to ionization current of energy particles is also a major area of interest.
2. At the conference, the effects of γ-ray irradiation on the FINFET short-channel effect (SCE) will be tested for various pin widths and channel lengths, and with respect to the operation of other effects in NMOS and PMOS devices, the results of analysis using three-dimensional (3-D) TCAD simulations are shared. Plus, the physical interpretation of the effect of ionizing radiation on SCE in FINFET are examined, and the basic physics of the TID effect in relation to FinFETs and a physical model of ionization current amplified by parasitic BJT are used to provide an insight into the circuit design with resistance against SET and to discuss measure to ensure reliable circuit operation.

Woo-joon Lee, a senior researcher at the Korea Aerospace Research Institute, provides product assurance for the parts built into man-made satellites by verifying reliability and space radiation characteristics of aerospace electrical and electronic parts and semiconductors. He is currently responsible for a project on developing semiconductor soft error testing methods using a domestic accelerator. He has published a number of papers and holds US patents on semiconductor technology. At the conference, Lee talks about GCR, SPE, and Van Allen Belt, which are sources of space radiation, and introduce ways to predict the space radiation environment. He also discusses the method of testing soft errors on Earth by simulating space radiation. The test method applied is based on international standards. Plus, the space environment information, results of the test on Earth, and characteristics of the target part are combined to calculate the frequency of soft errors in the space environment. Lastly, the cases of performing testing on Earth by applying the above process are introduced.
