Online calculator to predict MTBF

Digi-Key Electronics, a global electronic components distributor, and BQR Reliability Engineering, a provider of reliability and maintenance engineering software and services, have collaborated to deliver a simple yet powerful mean time between failure (MTBF) calculator to support Digi-Key’s global customers.

Digi-Key has undertaken this venture to enable efficient use of BQR’s software solution in a SaaS mode to evaluate products’ bill of materials (BOM) MTBF.

“The new BOM MTBF application will enable Digi-Key customers to easily compare different BOMs MTBF, making sure the design meets the reliability goal early in the design process, before manufacturing,” said Yizhak Bot, founder and CTO of BQR Reliability Engineering. “With Pareto reports showing the most unreliable components, it will ensure the selection of components that balance reliability and cost. It will also provide measures for warranty analysis, design reviews, tenders, product data sheets and design trade-offs.”

This tool makes it easy and quick to calculate MTBF for BOMs of any size — just export the BOM file and click on ‘Launch Calculator’ on the Digi-Key website. The online application includes a library smart data auto-complete for BOM components, using AI, fast calculation engine, and detailed Pareto and graphic reports.

The calculator is easy to use and 100% secure when the components library and results are saved on the user’s desktop. Users can also conduct quick ‘what if’ analyses, checking how a component’s quality level will increase the product MTBF.

“Digi-Key is excited to launch this new MTBF calculator which enables customers to see the component dependencies that their circuits are relying on and helps them determine the best mix of parts to use,” said Randall Restle, VP, Applications Engineering at Digi-Key. “Digi-Key and BQR want to make it fast and easy for customers to achieve their design and end-product goals.”
