Why electronic components fail
Electronic components have a wide range of failure modes. Failures can be caused by excess temperature, excess current or voltage, ionizing radiation, mechanical shock, stress or impact, and many other causes..Component failures follow a trend. In the early life of an electronic system, component failures are more common and the chance of failure drops as they are . Every type of component has different failure modes. Just going through the failure modes for different types of capacitors in detail could be a book. And it would .
