Silicon Power Special Transistor
TI number: G00414

This transistor is representative of the radiation tolerant power transistors developed by TI. The type designation indicates a "special device", the TI term of a variation of a standard device with specifications for one customer.

This transistor is date coded 6916. The leads indicate that it was probably used for some engineering evaluation in TI. The ceramic insert in the cap is typical of radiation tolerant transistors. The device design was done in the mid 1960's. The customer was Bendix, Kansas City, indicating use in a nuclear weapon application. This type was produced until about 1978. Transistors with several variations of the basic chip design are still being produced.
