Abstract
This paper concerns the validity of a widely used method for
estimating the architecture-level mean time to failure (MTTF)
due to soft errors. The method first calculates the failure rate
for an architecture-level component as the product of its raw
error rate and an architecture vulnerability factor (AVF). Next,
the method calculates the system failure rate as the sum of the
failure rates (SOFR) of all components, and the system MTTF
