I've been hanging around signal integrity and jitter measurements for a few years, much more than burn-in. Hence, I think of bathtub curves in regards to estimating bit-error-rate versus sampling location on an eye diagram.

And I've never heard of it with respect to eye diagrams...

But then my experience with burn-in is far more extensive than my experinec with eye diagrams.

I must have had DesignCon overload.

had never heard the term "bathtub curve" used in conjunction with the term "burn in."

Being very flippant I wonder if the builders of Stonehenge ever visualised a Bathtub curve for its programmed life?

Nice article takes me back to my equipment test days with safety critical systems. In maintenance it's knowing which bits to replace and the bits not to replace. Airlines found this out to their cost a long time ago. Lets hope they remember thier lessons.
