bathtub curve
Jump to user comments
Common term for the curve (resembling an end-to-end section of
one of those claw-footed antique bathtubs) that describes the
expected failure rate of electronics with time: initially
high, dropping to near 0 for most of the system's lifetime,
then rising again as it "tires out". See also burn-inperiod, infant mortality.
