    162162Gateworks uses the MTBF parts count method in MILHDBK-217F, Notices 1 and 2. The calculations are based upon Ground Benign environment at 55C.

     164* Things like connectors, MOSFET's, PLX switches, components that generate heat, drastically shorten the lifespan of the board.  Some of our boards such as the GW5100 are very basic, its MTBF is calculated at 94.3 years.  This may seem unrealistic but consider MTBF is biased on the board being at a constant temperature in a controlled environment, so it's not accounting for weather, salty air, dust, and other things we associate with ageing.  MTBF is not intended to be a real world calculation, it's only to provide a baseline so different products can be assessed against each other in a measurable way.
