Consider two diods connected in parallel. Suppose the life times T1,T2 of each diod have the same distribution function F.What is the life time T of the whole system? What is the distribution of T?
My intuition was that T= Max (T1,T2) because it is parallel, even if one failed, the other would still work. As a result, the distribution of T is just F. Can anyone please help me out? Many thanks.
