We report new results from both broad-beam, heavy-ion and proton experiments for circuit-level RHBD techniques in SiGe digital logic. Redundant circuit elements within the latches are used to significantly reduce single-event upset rates in shift registers and clock paths, without resorting to TMR techniques.
