Subject: error in MIL-HDBK-217F N2 ???
Message:
On page 10-2, CDR style chip capacitor has failure rate of .0020, but a CRW style chip has a rate of .00005. All other styles except variables have rates with at least 3 decimal places before first significant number. Is this a misprint in the manual???

The base failure rate for CDR chip capacitors is 0.002 failures per million hours. This database is included in the technical report RL-TR-92-197 "Reliability Assessment of Critical Electronic Components" which shows that all of the ceramic capacitor data is 0.00198 failures per million hours including the chip part.
