REL-1009 -A-A Reliability Report for AME8831 Series Product Approved by Prepared by Amy Shen Quality & Reliability Dept. Manager Eric Chen Quality & Reliability Dept. Engineer Conclusion: The AME8831 series product has successfully met AME’s reliability standard that is required on all AME, Inc products. Furthermore, QRA Dept. of AME, Inc monitors the reliability continuously to make sure that all AME8831 series product will still meet AME’s reliability standard in the future. Table of Contents: Ⅰ、General Description Ⅱ、Product Information Ⅲ、Failures In Time Calculation Ⅳ、Product Reliability Test Result Ⅴ、Package Reliability Test Result Ⅵ、IR-reflow Test Result Ⅰ、General Description: The AME8831 family of positive, linear regulators feature low quiescent current (17µA typ.) with low dropout voltage, making them ideal for battery applications. The space-saving SOT-25 packages are attractive for “Pocket” and “Hand Held”applications. These rugged devices have both Thermal Shutdown, and Current Limitation to prevent device failure under the “Worst” operating conditions. In application requires a low noise regulated supply. The AME8831 family uses the SR pin to program the output voltage’s slew rate to control the in-rush current. This is specifically used in the USB application where large load capacitance is present at start-up. The AME8831 also features a logic-enabled sleep mode to shutdown the regulator, reducing quiescent current to 1µA typical at TA= 25oC. The AME8831 is stable with an output capacitance of 4.7µF or larger.

Where AF is acceleration factor setting activation energy to 1.0eV as zero failure.
