The error associated with a widely used transistor neutron probability of survival formula has been assesed. The probability of survival prediction for three transistor types was compared with the actual fraction of transistors whose gain remained above a selected limit at each of several fluence levels. The agreement was very good, suggesting that the formulation used does not introduce excessive conservatism into the calculation.
