This technical specification is intended to provide guidance on atmospheric radiation effects on high voltage (nominally above 200 V) avionics electronics used in aircraft operating at altitudes up to 60 000 ft (18,3 km). It is intended to be used in conjunction with IEC/TS 62396- 1. This specification defines the effects of that environment on high voltage electronics and provides design considerations for the accommodation of those effects within avionics systems.
This technical specification is intended to help aerospace equipment manufacturers and designers to standardise their approach to single event effects on high voltage avionics by providing guidance, leading to a standard methodology.
Details are given of the types of single event effects relevant to the operation of high voltage avionics electronics, methods of quantifying those effects, appropriate methods to assist design and methods to demonstrate the suitability of the electronics for the application.
