4.1. Service life

A product’s service life, at a given temperature, is the period of time during which this product is expected to operate delivering all features for which it has been designed. The service life of any product is determined by the components of this product with a shorter service life. In the case of power supplies, these components are usually the electrolytic capacitors which also have a service life completely dependent on the temperature; this is shown in figure 21.
