MEAN TIME BETWEEN FAILURE - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hi!

"MTBF" doesn't mean the same thing to everyone. The military has a formula, and some - maybe most - component manufacturers have their own formulas and data. Your first choice is to get failure data from the manufacturer, along with how they figure it. (You just can't wait for 100,000 hours for a life test - that's 12.5 years!)

Your second choice is the use of handbook formulas. That is definitely a far second.

Good Luck!
Fred
