Bipolar junction transistors (BJT's) are susceptible to particle bombardment in radiative environment. This paper presents a model which is capable of predicting BJT performance subjected to neutron irradiation and is suitable for SPICE circuit simulation. It is shown that neutron irradiation affects slightly the emitter-base space-charge region capacitance but strongly the forward-active dc current gain. Results calculated from the present model compare favorably with measured dependencies available in the literature. The present model is also implemented into SPICE, and the performance of a BJT differential amplifier is simulated.
