    Plastic strain versus fatigue life data are presented for tests run at -- 50, 35, 125, and 150°C. It was found that these data could be correlated by the Coffin-Manson fatigue law, with an exponent of approximately 0.5 for the tests run at -35°C to 125°C. At 150°C the exponent was reduced to 0.37. These results were obtained for plastic strain limited tests. Different results a... View full abstract»

    Fast charging and discharging of solid tantalum capacitors causes breakdown by heating in the MuO2cathode instead of dielectric breakdown. It appears that localized regions of lower resistance and poor thermal contact to a heat sink allow very high temperatures to occur. These "hot spots" can then cause breakdown of the adjacent dielectric film and, eventually, loss of the capacitor. Te... View full abstract»

    Electrical failures due to excessive current leakage have been observed in several hybrids during both hot and cold temperature testing. Failures have been correlated with increased amounts of ionic and gaseous contamination in the package. Short-term failures at cold temperature appeared to be due to ammonia (from the substrate-attach epoxy) condensing on the substrate and acting as a conductive ... View full abstract»
