    Has anyone ever carried out statistical analysis of component failure rates/ reliability?

    For example, tantalum caps would have a high failure rate so would be high up on the list... it would be good to have a list of components in order least reliable to reliable...

    It would also be good to have similar list for device package types (e.g. PLCC, DIPs...) or any other failure analaysis info!

    Thanks :)
