Reliability Prediction Procedure for Electronic Equipment

Document Number SR-332
Issue Number 03
Issue Date Jan 2011

    ABSTRACT: Reliability prediction is an important element in the process of selecting equipment. These predictions provide necessary input
    to system-level reliability modes for predicting expected downtime per year and system availability. Issue 3 of SR-332 provides all the
    tools needed for predicting device and unit hardware reliability, and contains extensive revisions since the document was last issued.

    The Telcordia Reliability Prediction Procedure has a long and distinguished history of use within and outside the
    telecommunications industry. Issue 3 of SR-332 provides the only hardware reliability prediction procedure developed from the input and
    participation of a cross-section of major industrial companies. This lends the procedure and the predictions derived from it a high
    level of credibility free from the bias of any individual supplier or service provider.

    Issue 3 of SR-332 contains:
    • Recommended methods for predicting device and unit hardware reliability. These techniques estimate the mean failure rate in
      FITs for electronic equipment. This procedure also documents a recommended method for predicting serial system hardware

    • Tables needed to facilitate the calculation of reliability predictions

    • New data for fiber optic transceivers, hard drives, and ferrite beads

    • Revised generic device failure rates in Section 8, based mainly on new data for many components

    • An extended range of complexity for devices

    • Updated formulas and FIT rates for integrated circuits

    • New temperature curves for miscellaneous devices

    • Clarified definitions regarding operating temperatures

    • A new level to the environmental factor to account for a frequently used deployment technique

    • Clarity for various component names.
