High Reliability Electronics Mil Spec Standards

MilSpecs for high reliability electronics are a combination of military standards (MIL-STD) and military handbooks (MIL-HDBK) that focus on performance criteria without specifying the design details to allow for maximum innovation on the part of designers while still producing provably reliable electronics in the end. Given the conditions under which the military operates and with how little room for error it does so, the electronics that are used have to be reliable to a degree that consumer markets generally do not demand, in situations that ordinary consumers will not encounter, and subjected to conditions that are unique to the military.

MIL-STD-1686C

ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE CONTROL PROGRAM FOR PROTECTION OF ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC PARTS, ASSEMBLIES AND EQUIPMENT (EXCLUDING ELECTRICALLY INITIATED EXPLOSIVE DEVICES)

The purpose of this standard is to establish comprehensive requirements for an ESD control program to minimize the effects of ESD on parts, assemblies, and equipment.

MIL-HDBK-217F(2)

Reliability Prediction of Electronic Equipment

The purpose of this handbook is to establish and maintain consistant and uniform methods for estimating the inherent reliability (i.e., the reliability of a mature design) of military electronic equipment and systems. It provides a common basis for reliability predictions during acquisition programs for military electronic systems and equipment. It also establishes a common basis for comparing and evaluating reliability predictions of related or competitive designs. The handbook is intended to be used as a tool to increase the reliability of the equipment being designed.


MIL-HDBK-251

Reliability/Design Thermal Applications

This handbook recommends and presents electronic parts stress analysis methods which lead to the selection of maximum safe temperatures for parts so that the ensuing thermal design is consistent with the required equipment reliability. These maximum parts temperature must be properly selected since they are the goals of the thermal design, a fact which is often overlooked. Many thermal designs are inadequate because improper maximum parts temperature were selected as design goals. Consequently, the necessary parts stress analysis procedures have been emphasized. Specific step by step thermal design procedures are given in chapter 4.


MIL-HDBK-263B

Electrostatic Discharge Control Handbook for Protection of Electrical and Electronic Parts, Assemblies and Equipment (Excluding Electrically Initiated Explosive Devices) (Metric)

This handbook provides guidance for developing, implementing and monitoring as ESD control program in accordance with the requirements of MIL-STD- 1686. Information is provided in 6.1 that cross references the various revisions of MIL-HDBK- 263 to the appropriate revision of MIL-STD-1686. This handbook is not applicable to electrically initiated explosive devices. The specific guidance provided is supplemented by the technical data contained in the appendices. Table I a cross-reference listing of MIL-STD-1686 requirements, MIL-HDBK-263 guidance, and MIL-HDBK-263 supplementary technical data.
