FAILURE RATE
\u2022 The number of failures of an item within the
population per unit of operation (time, cycles,
miles, runs, etc.)
ELECTRONIC SYSTEM
RELIABILITY - WHY IMPORTANT?

\u2022 PROBLEMS
\u2013 Electronic systems involves the utilization of very
large numbers of components which are very similar.
\u2013 The designer has little control over their production
and manufacture but must specify catalogue items.
\u2013 The designer has little control over device reliability.
\u2013 Control of the production process is a major
determinant of reliability.
\u2013 It is difficult to test for electronic component defects
that do not immediately affect performance.
\u2022 SOLUTION: Very close attention must be paid to
electronics part reliability. The design must involve a

reliability team.

STRESS
\u2013 The actual stress (or load) applied
during
operation of the part (e. g. voltage for
capacitor, dissipated power for
resistors)
\u2022 RATED STRESS
\u2013 The manufacturers rating for the
part.
\u2022 STRESS RATIO
\u2013 Ratio of operating stress to rated
stress.
\u2022 PART GRADES

\u2013 Grade 1, 2 etc. designates high
quality
standard parts.
\u2013 JAN, Industrial and Commercial
Grades
designations for other parts that can
be

used.
BACKGROUND

\u2022 Reliability engineering and
management grew
up largely in response to the
problems of
electronic equipment reliability.
\u2022 Many reliability techniques have
been

developed from electronics
applications.
