Cumulative long term non-ionizing damage due to protons, electrons, and neutrons.
Production of defects which results in CTR degradation
Optocouplers, solar cells, CCDs, linear bipolar devices
Shielding has some effect - depends on location of device
Can eliminate electron damage
Reduce some proton damage
