Silicon Power Transistor - 1969
TI number: G00415

The TIXP40 was an experimental radiation tolerant silicon power transistor developed in the mid 1960's. The "TIXP" designates it as an experimental design for a specific customer application. The specifications were registered with JEDEC in 1970 and designated 2N5940.

This transistor has a 6916 date code and apparently was soldered into a circuit for evaluation. The 2N5940 is still being produced by TI.
