Single-Event Burnout (SEB) is a catastrophic failure in the high voltage devices that is initiated by the passage of particles during turn-off state. Previous papers reported that SEB failure rate increases sharply when applied voltage exceeds a certain threshold voltage. On the other hand, the high voltage devices for the artificial satellite have been increasing. In space, due to increase flux of particle, it is predicted that SEB failure rate will be higher. In this paper, we proposed the failure rate calculation method for high voltage devices based on SEB cross section and flux of particles. This formula can calculate the failure rate at space level and terrestrial level depending on the applied voltage of the high voltage devices.
