Studies are presented of single-particle ion effects in body-tied CMOS/silicon-on-insulator (SOI) devices. It is shown that two mechanisms can contribute to SOI soft-error rates: a direct ion-induced photocurrent and a local lateral bipolar current. The total amount of charge collected is sensitive to the relative locations of the ion strike and the body-to-source tie.
