The number of double-bit upsets induced by protons in a 16 Mb DRAM was found to increase with angle of incidence. The increase was greater for intermediate energy (63 MeV) protons than for high-energy (198 MeV) protons. An explanation is offered and the results of a calculation using the CUPID program agree with the observations.
