Subject: PRISM component reliability prediction
I had installed demo version of PRISM,I want to predict the reliability of a transistor.Even though the case temperature measurement of the device says TJ 85 degree as against 150 degree, i am subjecting the Voltage stress greater than 100%.
VCE stress is disabled in the demo software.
Will it be disabled in the Purchased software also (or) will it be enabled?

To activate VCE stress in the PRISM software you must uncheck the "use percentages" option on the model parameters window for a transistor. Once this is unchecked PRISM (including the demo) will allow you to input actual rated and applied VCE stresses for a transistor.
If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact me.
