In modern electronic equipment, many components operate at stress levels much below their rated values. The factors governing failure, and therefore reliability, may be quite different at these levels from those that apply at the higher levels at which testing is usually performed. Using electrical contacts and dielectric materials as examples, the importance of considering low stress phenomena is pointed out, and the need for more investigation is stressed.
