Physical radiation experiments are a vital means for
calibrating simulation models targeted to studying the impact of
ionizing particles on VLSI circuits. However, their conduction
requires special care and a very specific setup. In this paper we
give an overview of such an experimental setup, and highlight
some specific details. Beyond showing the context overarching the
objectives of the experiments, the envisioned radiation sources,
as well as design and architecture of a specific target ASIC, we
will put specific emphasis on the communication infrastructure,
namely an FPGA that controls the data exchange between some
preprocessing infrastructure located on the target ASIC on one
side and the host PC running the data analysis on the other.
Finally, the physical arrangement comprising carrier PCB for
the target ASIC, and cabling, which need to adhere specific
requirements, will receive some attention as well.
