Single sided, multiguarded, n+/p PIN diodes have been processed at BNL with high resistivity silicon. Various designs, from one to eleven guardrings, with alternating p-stops have been characterized to evaluate the n+/p technology as a candidate single side substitute to the usual double sided p+/n or n+/n devices. Exposure to 67 Mev protons with an integrated fluence of 3.x10**14 p/cm**2 has been performed at the UC Davis Crocker Nuclear Laboratory and the response to irradiation is compared with the preirradiation performances.
