REL-1271-A- A Reliability Report for AME8827 Series Product Approved by Prepared by Amy Shen Jess Lin Quality & Reliability Dept. Manager Quality & Reliability Dept. Engineer Conclusion: The AME8827 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 AME8827 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 AME8827 family of positive, CMOS linear regulators and provide low dropout voltage (340mV @ 1A) and excellent PSRR, thus making them ideal for power-saving systems. These rugged devices have both Thermal Shutdown, and Current limit to prevent device failure under the "Worst" of operating conditions. The AME8827 is stable with an output capacitance of 4.7µF or larger. Ⅱ、Product Information: Ⅲ、Failures In Time Calculation: Use HTOL test information mentioned in sectionⅣ, FIT (Failures In Time) can be calculated as below: FIT = ( x 2 (ν , CL ) × 10 9 ) /( 2 × S × H × AF ) = ( 4 .61 × 10 9 ) /( 2 × 77 × 1000 × 280 .59 ) =106.69 (pieces per 109 hours) @ 40℃ with 90% Confidence Level. Where AF is acceleration factor setting activation energy to 1.0eV as zero failure.
