Subject: PRISM component reliability prediction
Message:
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?

Message:
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.
