Subject: component derating
Message:
I noticed an interesting question and since the answers were not particularly helpful, I'd like to arise the question once more. "Does anyone have any new quantifiable data on the use of component parameter derating (thermal, power etc). I am used to the usual "margin of ignorance" type arguments, package glass transition temperatures and the junction/channel type Arrhenius relationships (generally with assumed activation energies). However, is there any more recent quantifiable data available to convince a sceptical design engineer and to what extent is derating used?" Thank you for your help!
