Subject: Storage reliability
I would like to calculate the dormant storage reliability of a system using PRISM. I set duty cycle and cycling rate to zero and also did not input any stress parameters for parts. The result gives me a failure rate which includes solder joint and electrical overstress failure rate components for each part in addition to the part nonoperational failure rate. I also applied Process Grade Factor. Is this failure rate comparable to previous approach of using 1% conversion factor for dormant storage? If not, what data should be used to get storage reliability.
