Subject: Component Reliability (Belcore vs Supplier Data)
I am starting to use the Belcore (Part Stress / Method 1 Case 3) to predict the reliability for various components (esp ICs) but I can also use the supplier's FIT data from their internal demonstration test. Does anybody have any experience on which which method would provide a better result?
