|Reliability Assessment of Passives for 300C and 350C|
|Keywords: high temperature components, reliability, capacitor|
|Highly accelerated life testing (HALT) is used to quickly assess the reliability of passive components for geothermal applications operating at 300°C ambient temperature. The HALT methodology uses combined stresses to accelerate the failure of capacitors and resistors. This paper describes the test methodology and results on capacitors and resistors at 300C and 350C. Life models for the components are presented.
