Abstract

An highly focused and highly cost effective failure-orientedaccelerated- testing (FOAT) [1] was suggested about a decade ago as an extension and a modification of highly accelerated life testing (HALT) [2] and as an experimental basis of the novel probabilistic design for reliability (PDfR) concept [3]. Such testing is intended to be carried out at the design stage of a new electronic, photonic, MEMS and MOEMS (optical MEMS) technology or a new design, when high operational reliability (like the one required, e.g., for aerospace, military, or long-haul communication applications) is a must. On the other hand, burn-in-testing (BIT).
