We do Reliability MTBF calculations for our products. I have a specific

question regarding the FIT figures of ceramic capacitors.

In MIL HNBK 217 are given basic FIT figures for ech type of components also

for ceramic capacitors. But if we search for real figures presented by the

manufacturers of ceramic capacitor these real FIT figures are MUCH better

(so lower FIT figures).

How do you handle with this?

If you use the real FIT figures than you can not stated calculations made

according MIL HNBK 217F, but these calculate figures are much realistic than

with the data from the MIL HNBK 217.

Thanks for your reply's
