Questions:

- 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).
