SNowadays, electronic devices are the major part of many applications starting from automotive market to military equipment, from personal computers and cellphones to satellites and spacecrafts. Each application has its own requirements and specification to be fulfilled by the designers. Some of these applications known as mission critical application are involved in a huge amount of money and resources that could be lost if something goes wrong. Therefore, electronic devices used in the mission critical application require special attention in terms of dependability to guarantee that they can tolerate faults induced by environment that could lead to the failure of the entire system. One of the main environmental aspects that can reduce the reliability of electronic devices used in mission critical application is radiation. In space, several kinds of radiation can interact with the electronic devices and create faults and damages. Strategies and techniques should be applied to the used electronic devices to tolerate faults and errors. However, the applied techniques and methods should be analyzed and tested to confirm their efficiency. Performing radiation test in the radiation facilities in one of the most efficient method to emulate radiation effect on the electronic devices since it provides the most realistic scenario with respect to the space environment. However, due to the high cost of radiation test, typically, engineers and designers can afford few hours of radiation chamber to perform the test on their developed design and collect the huge amount of results of their test. Given the high number of these necessary tests, and the conditions in which these tests take place, i.e. the limited time available, as well as the limited if not absent internet connection, lead to the development of more efficient flow management tools. The goal of my thesis was precisely the creation of a tool that supports the execution of a radiation test providing a comprehensive and reliable archive for radiation test projects by: - Managing all static material, from design sheets to datasheets - Associating the corresponding facility where it would have taken place - Preparing in advance all the tests to be carried out, with data relating to ions, number of bits, and being able to catalog each execution with a system of tags ¿- Seeing the results in real time without having to rely to custom excel sheets, prone to accidental errors. The developed application was therefore tested on the results of a real case of radiation test performed at CERN facility.
