The 217Plus Analyzes System Failure Rate

The Reliability Information Analysis Center (RIAC) has released the 217Plus system reliability prediction software tool. The software includes 12 component models that calculate capacitor, connector, diode, inductor, integrated circuit, optoelectronic device, relay, resistor, switch, transformer and transistor failure rates.

The 217Plus also features a failure rate database of nonmodeled components and assemblies based on RIAC’s Nonelectron-ic Parts Reliability Data and Electronic Parts Reliability Data publications. The software addresses the positive or negative impact of system level noncomponent processes on the overall system failure rate through the application of process grade factors.

HeatBuster Mirrors Operate Over Angles

Deposition Sciences’ HeatBuster cold mirror product line withstands light levels up to about 200W per square centimeter and temperatures about to 400° C. HeatBuster cold mirrors are designed to operate over a range of angles, and their coatings are suitable for use in fold mirror and light tunnel applications in which a focused light beam is needed to reduce the size of the optics and overall unit.

The cold mirrors can be applied to infrared transparent substrates and opaque materials. HeatBuster coatings reflect visible light without changing color appearance of the source.
