A silicon detector with a fast electronics chain is used for the dosimetry of protons in the range 0.5-5 MeV at the CNA 3 MV Tandem laboratory in Seville, Spain. In this configuration, measurements can be performed in pulsed mode, using a digitizer to record event-by-event proton energy depositions. The distributions of deposited energy were obtained thanks to a calibration with an alpha source. Measurements of flux and deposited energy are used to enable SEE testing on selected SRAMs.
