Tables and Standards
Do you need to MTBF calculations for electronic components? Military Handbook 217 (MIL-HDBK-217) contains failure prediction models for many types of electronic equipment.
|What is it for?
|MTBF Calculation for Resistors
|Calculate the MTBF (Mean time between failures) and failure rate for resistors, thermistors, and variable resistors using the MIL-HDBK-217F model.
|MTBF Calculation for Capacitors
|Calculation of the MTBF and failure rate of capacitors using the MIL-HDBK-217F model.
|Finding the code used by the handbook for your particular operating environment. Click here to learn about Environmental Test Chambers.
|MTBF Calculation for bipolar and MOS microcircuits, gate arrays, logic arrays, microprocessors
|Calculate the MTBF (Mean time between failures) and failure rate for digital and linear microcircuits, PLA/PAL, and microprocessors.
Note: Military handbook MIL-HDBK-217 is the most widely used source for failure models for electronic. We will be using the most recent revision, MIL-HDBK-217 Revision F Notice 2, in all our calculators, unless otherwise noted. The latest version is also known as MIL-HDBK-217F Notice 2. Previous versions included MIL-HDBK-217E
