Abstract : The report describes the results of a comprehensive study which was designed to determine improved techniques for providing radiation hardness assurance on modern electronic systems. The electrical screening approach examined correlations between certain initial electrical parameters and the radiation sensitivities of the devices. The correlation parameters were selected on the basis of physical reasoning and the radiation sensitivites were defined differently for the various radiation environments. Neutron hardness assurance is treated first and the various classes of devices such as low-power transistors, high-power transistors, JFETs and ICs are discussed separately.
