IEC 62380 European Commercial Telecom Standard
Electronic Reliability Prediction
The IEC 62380 module supports reliability prediction methods based on the latest European Reliability Prediction Standard. Originally, a French Standard published by the Union Technique de L’Electricite (UTE, July 2000 - RDF). The standard has evolved and become the European Standard for Reliability Prediction (IEC 62380). Its unique approach and methodology has gained worldwide recognition. IEC 62380 is a significant step forward in reliability prediction when compared to older reliability standards.
The IEC 62380 Module provides model for reliability prediction of electronic components, optical cards, printed circuit boards and equipments, which takes directly into account the influence of the environment. Environment factors are no longer used as they are replaced by mission profile/ thermal cycling undergone by the equipment. These models can handle permanent working, on/off cycles and dormant applications. Failures related to component soldering are included in the component failure rate.
This technical report provides elements to calculate failure rate of mounted electronic components. It makes equipment reliability optimization studies easier to carry out, thanks to the introduction of influence factors.
