Abstract : The engineering method of calculating and evaluating the reliability of discrete logic circuits is outlined. This method includes generalized characterization of individual failures and breakdowns in circuits of standard logical units. It is stated that the reliability of a system as a whole is determined by a formula for the probability of infallible functioning of its separate elements. It is concluded that, in essence, once the probability of infallibility is determined for the circuit, the reliability of the discrete logic circuit can then be easily calculated. (Author)
