Abstract : The major effort was to develop a computer simulation model of nuclear interactions induced by energetic protons. Our analysis indicates that the recoiling nuclear fragment is the dominant contributor to large energy depositions in small volume elements. This knowledge may allow considerable simplification in calculating proton induced error rates. Included in this report is Appendix A: Proton Induced Nuclear Reactions in Silicon, Appendix B: Charged Particles Cause Microelectronics Malfunction in Space and Appendix C: Energy Deposition by Nuclear Interactions in Microscopic Volumes.
