Study of a delayed single-event effect in the Muller C-element

Abstract - We study the behavior of the Muller C-element, a fundamental building block in asynchronous design, under SETs. Beyond the expected reactions to the injected SETs - namely immediate state flip or pulse at the output - we also observed an new kind of behavior for the Muller C-element, namely a delayed state flip. In this paper we give a closer analysis of this effect and identify its enabling conditions.
