Subject: ASIC Reliability
Are there any generic guidelines for ASIC reliability? -Useful Life? -Average failure rate Things I don't know but want to find out: - Number of machine on/off cycles = ??? - Number of Machine Mini-cycles = ??? - Mini cycle duration = ??? * A mini-cycle is defined as a significant deviation from normal power on operation. From what a vendor tells me, this is the number of "unusual" power up cycles and the info is used for second level attach reliability analysis Can someone please provide me some typical values for the above parameters??
