The effects of 63 MeV proton irradiation on 90 nm strained silicon CMOS on insulator is examined for the first time. The devices show no observable degradation in DC performance up to an equivalent total dose of 600 krad(Si). The performance of the strained pFETs is identical to unstrained pFETs and demonstrates the immunity of strain to displacement damage. There is no significant enhancement observed in back channel leakage for the maximum dose. Passive exposure to 2 Mrad(Si) using 4 MeV protons doesn't induce any significant performance degradation
