A Single Event Transient (SET) is a transient voltage pulse induced by an ionizing radiation particle striking a combinational logic node in a circuit. The probability of a storage element capturing the transient pulse depends on the width of the pulse. Measuring the rate of occurrence and the distribution of SET pulse widths is essential to understand the likelihood of soft errors and to develop cost-effective mitigation schemes.
