Subject: EEPROM Failure Model
I have some questions concerning the MIL-HDBK-217F Notice 2 failure rate model for EEPROM's (Page 5-4) What happens to A1 and A2 when the total number of programming cycles over EEPROM life goes over 500K? Is it possible that these tables are out of date and that EEPROM's rated at 1000K programming cycles (over life) are now being used reliably? What is there in the technical literature on this topic?
