Failure Rate Calculation

 FIT View data sheet in Acrobat PDF format

The steady-state FITs is calculated = GQST (failures / billion hours) per Telcordia Technologies Special Report SR-332, Issue 1, May 2001.

G = chosen from Telcordia SR-332, Table 7-1 (90% upper confidence level)
Q = 1.0 (from from Telcordia SR-332, Table 7-4 for Quality Level II)
S = 1.0 (from from Telcordia SR-332, Table 7-6, assuming 50% electrical stress level)
T = 2.0 (calculated for +85°C per Table 7-7 with Ea activation energy = 0.15 eV)
