Failure Rate Calculation

View PDF data sheet

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

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