High reliability of electronics is crucial for those systems operating in hard conditions, in particular when in-situ maintenance is not possible, as it is the case for space or deep-sea projects. The KM3NeT infrastructure, whose first Detection Units are currently being deployed on the Mediterranean Sea at depths of 2500-3500 meters, has chosen the FIDES method as reliability technique to estimate the failure in time of the different electronics boards. In the present article, the application of the FIDES method to the electronics of the Digital Optical Modules of the KM3NeT neutrino telescope is described in detail.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
