Hi All,

Thank you very much for all of your responses. Here's an update of where I'm at:

- I am trying to get MTBF data for mil-TEMP parts instead of mil-SPEC. My customer requires this data, which is why I initially went with mil-SPEC.
- My customer is reluctant to go to just the mil-TEMP version.
- I am going to persuade my customer that using 1812 0.1uF's aren't going to do much because of the huge package size. So, a tradeoff between MTBF and usefulness has to be made.
- If I am allowed to use standard parts, then I will most likely use 50V or 100V 0805 0.1uF's and get rid of the 4700pF. The higher cap voltage should yield a better MTBF number, which would satisfy my customer.

Again, I appreciate all of the valuable information you all have contributed.

Chris
