4.2.1 Percent defective allowable (PDA).
a. The PDA for class S devices shall be 5 percent for static burn-in and 5 percent for dynamic burn-in, based on the
exact number of devices submitted to each separate burn-in.
b. Static burn-in I and II failures shall be cumulative for determining the PDA.
c. The PDA for class B devices shall be in accordance with MIL-PRF-38535 for static burn-in. Dynamic burn-in is not
d. Those devices whose measured characteristics, after burn-in, exceed the specified delta (Ć) limits or electrical
parameter limits specified in table I, subgroup 1, are defective and shall be removed from the lot. The verified
number of failed devices times 100 divided by the total number of devices in the lot initially submitted to burn-in shall
be used to determine the percent defective for the lot and the lot shall be accepted or rejected based on the specified
4.3 Qualification inspection. Qualification inspection shall be in accordance with MIL-PRF-38535.
4.4 Technology Conformance inspection (TCI). Technology conformance inspection shall be in accordance with
MIL-PRF-38535 and herein for groups A, B, C, D, and E inspections (see 4.4.1 through 4.4.5).
4.4.1 Group A inspection. Group A inspection shall be in accordance with table III of MIL-PRF-38535 and as follows:
a. Tests shall be performed in accordance with table II herein.
O/V and O/I (latch-up) tests shall be measured only for initial qualification and after process or design changes
which may affect the performance of the device. Latch-up test shall be considered destructive. Test all applicable
pins on 5 devices with no failures.
CIN and CPD shall be measured only for initial qualification and after process or design changes that may affect
capacitance. CIN shall be measured between the designated terminal and GND at a frequency of 1 MHz. CPD shall
be tested in accordance with the latest revision of JEDEC Standard No. 20 and table I herein. For CIN and CPD, test
all applicable pins on five devices with zero failures.
Subgroups 9 and 11 shall be measured only for initial qualification and after process or design changes which may
affect dynamic performance.
Subgroups 7 and 8 tests shall be sufficient to verify the truth table.
4.4.2 Group B inspection. Group B inspection shall be in accordance with table II of MIL-PRF-38535.
4.4.3 Group C inspection. Group C inspection shall be in accordance with table IV of MIL-PRF-38535 and as follows:
a. End-point electrical parameters shall be as specified in table II herein. Delta limits shall apply only to subgroup 1 of
group C inspection and shall consist of tests specified in table III herein.
b. The steady-state life test duration, test condition, and test temperature, or approved alternatives shall be as specified
in the device manufacturer's QM plan in accordance with MIL-PRF-38535. The burn-in test circuit shall be
maintained under document control by the device manufacturer's Technology Review Board (TRB) in accordance
with MIL-PRF-38535 and shall be made available to the acquiring or preparing activity upon request. The test circuit
shall specify the inputs, outputs, biases, and power dissipation, as applicable, in accordance with the intent specified
in test method 1005 of MIL-STD-883.
