    A computer code has been developed that calculates the defect density induced in a semiconductor device by space protons striking a shield around the device. Results depend critically on low-energy spectral details of the incident protons. Defect densities in silicon as a function of shielding thickness are given for several typical spectra, normalized to allow multiplication by a suitable flux value.
