Hi to all. i have a question.
Is it possible that the static RAM data changes with a noise?

Yes, if the noise occurs on the address, data and/or control lines the data will be corrupted. If the noise on the power supply temporarily "remove" the power to the RAM there may be data corruption. In both cases the noise amplitude must be around the logic level for the specific RAM

Thus if i have an MCU that work in a noisy place, it is possible that some of my RAM data changes?

I think that if i refresh RAM data periodically, it can reduces errors.

is the product used for any critical application, then there are various error detection and error correction techniques to be implemented in order to minimise this...

Slow March test, CRC,, double inverted storage techniques are very oftenly used....

well, they can detect error (and some of them correct error). How can i reduce occurrence of these errors?

Thank a lot for given information.

---------- Post added at 14:27 ---------- Previous post was at 14:15 ----------

And how can i test my circuit for its noise immunity? or how can i test my circuit for measuring error caused by noise?
is there any standard for such testing?
