dc.description.abstract Protons with sufficiently high energy, provided in a broad field covering on the order of 0.1m2 can be used to perform board-level testing for single event effects (SEE). NASA has used this approach for board-level testing over the last 20 years. Although many difficulties inherent in SEE testing are simplified when using a board-level test, including reduced cost, the method is inherently risky because of the limited value of the collected data and the potential to make critical mistakes when performing SEE testing this way, leading to data of less value. Historically, NASA’s approach to proton board-level testing has been limited to lower criticality applications. However, with users both inside and outside NASA using this method for higher levels of mission assurance, we have put together a set of lessons and recommendations to improve the value of data collected using this method. Focus areas covered include test preparation, test execution, and interpretation of results. en_US
