Subject: Reliability Prediction for New Components
A certain type of optical module is used in our circuit board. Its failure rate data is derived from either Bellcore or field statistic. For some reasons, we use a new type of optical module in the new product. The new component is made by a different new technical, or a different manufacturing process, or even only manufactured by a different product line. Can the failure rate of the old component be used in the new component? Or how to get the new component's failrue rate?
