To calculate the MTBF and failure rate of a capacitor using the MIL-HDBK-217F failure model, enter its parameters in the following table.
(1) Established reliability styles are failure rate graded (D, C, SP, etc) based on life testing defined in the applicable military device specification. This category applies only to three-letter styles with an "R" suffix. Also see the quality table.
(2) Capacitor Ambient Temperature.
The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price has faded from memory.
