ELF4

A gene on chromosome Xq26 that encodes a transcriptional activator which binds and activates promoters of CSF2, IL3, IL8 and PRF1. ELF4 protein product is involved in natural killer cell development and function, innate immunity, and induction of cell cycle arrest in naïve CD8+ T cells. It is highly expressed in placenta and in various myeloid cell lines.

a Gate oxide rupture b failure mechanism unknown Since the change was made to the parts the ELFR has decreased dramatically [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 6 OMITTED] partly bemuse of the change and to a large extent because of defect reduction as Example 2 (below) indicates.
As previously mentioned, defect density (Do) has an effect on ELFR and on the reliability of the product produced as the same type of testing is performed to determine the reliability figure of merit (FIT rate) and the ELFR for each product or process.
This is the case when one reviews the ELFR figures for the last two years and as Figure 6 indicates the ELFR trend has been steadily decreasing with the decrease in the defect density.
