    - To calculate the MTBF or FIT of the CY7C9335

    - What is MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) for HOTLink CY7C9335?



    Response:

    MTBF = 1 / FIT.



    FIT for this part is 31FIT



    31 FIT is 31 x 10E-9/hour. So the MTBF = 1/FIT = 1 / 31 x 10E-9 (hours) / 24 (hours/day) / 365 (days/year) = 3682 years.



    key: FIT-failure in time (number of times an error occurs in one million hours).
