Reliability Assessment and Screening by Reliability Indicator Methods

Received20 Oct 1982
Accepted28 Jan 1983


Built-in flaws in electronic components have been recognized as a serious cause of failure. They are difficult to screen away by conventional methods because the times-to-failures for component working in systems are often rather long and because accelerated burn-in may screen by the wrong failure mechanisms. As an alternative, the concept and possible use of reliability indicator methods are discussed and some recently developed methods described.
