The Tutorial Example System that is provided with the PRISM Demo does not include FETs. If you wish to develop a failure rate for a FET highlight an assembly from the Tutorial Example System (this is done by positioning the cursor over an assembly and clicking the left mouse button). With the assembly highlighted click the right mouse button and choose "Add Component" from the pop-up menu. Now left-click on the "Lookup" button found in the upper right of the screen. In the box "Index Term" of the window that pops-up type "transistor" and then select the appropriate device from the box below. Using the tabs on the right half of the screen you may now further refine the failure rate model.
