Electronic Failure Rates


Could someone help me? I am requiring any information regarding data about the lifetime of electronic components, there is a lot of research on these subjects but all I am after is exact figures on when electronic components will fail.

Mainly electronic components within UPS's built around 1970-80's, the pre-programmed chips which nobody seems to be able to get hold of. I know they do a lot of this research for the nuclear industry.

RE: Electronic Failure Rates

The Air Force's Rome Air Development Center (RADC) probably has the biggest chunk of military-related failures and failure rates.  CALCE has stuff about physics of failure (POF).
