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.
|Table||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.|
|Operating Environments||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
