The accuracy of nuclear reaction models used in the PHITS (Particle and Heavy Ion Transport code System) code, i.e., the INC model, the QMD model and the event generator mode (e-mode) with the evaluated nuclear data library JENDL-3.3 are validated to apply it to the simulations on single-event effects in advanced microelectronic devices. The model calculations are compared with available experimental data of light-ion production (i.e., proton and alpha particle) from neutron-induced reactions on natSi and 16O, which are the major constituent elements of silicon semiconductor devices over the wide energy range. Comparisons of calculated and measured data for light-ion production indicate that the e-mode calculation with JENDL-3.3 provides better agreement with the experimental data below 20 MeV, and the QMD model reproduces them reasonably well at energies larger than 20 MeV.
