A description of the proton (IS SC-1000, IS OP-1000) and neutron (IS NP/GNEIS) test facilities at the 1 GeV synchrocyclotron SC-1000 of the PNPI used for radiation resistance testing of electronic components and systems intended for avionic and space research is presented. A unique conjunction of proton beams with variable energy 100–1000 MeV and atmospheric like neutron beam with broad energy range (1–1000 MeV) spectrum enables to perform complex testing of the semiconductor electronic devices within a single testing cycle.
