The pion resonance in the nuclear reaction cross section is seen to have direct impact on the Single Event Effect (SEE) cross-section of modern electronic devices. This was experimentally observed for Single Event Upsets and for Single Event Latchup. RPP (Rectangular ParallelePiped) models built to fit proton data confirm the existence of the pion SEE cross section resonance. The impact on current Radiation Hardness Assurance (RHA) Soft Error Rate (SER) predictions is however minimal for the accelerator environment since this is dominated by high neutron fluxes. The resonance is not seen to have a major impact on the High Energy Hadron equivalence approximation established for testing in mixed-field facilities.

The pion single-event latch-up cross-section enhancement : mechanisms and consequences for accelerator hardness assurance Coronetti, Andrea; Alia Garcia, Ruben; Cerutti, Francesco; Hajdas, Wojtek; Söderström, Daniel; Javanainen, Arto; Saigne, Frederic (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2021)Pions make up a large part of the hadronic environment typical of accelerator mixed-fields. Characterizing device cross-sections against pions is usually disregarded in favour of tests with protons, whose single-event ...
