Re: Which One is the Most Reliable Microcontroller?

Unfortunately you are left with microcontroller manufacturer literature (data sheets, application notes, etc) as the main resources to compare different microcontrollers. Sometimes reliability data is provided, sometimes not.
For very special cases you may be able to get additional reliability data out of the manufacturer directly, but I don't expect this to work unless you have a contact within the manufacturer (or have a good relationship with them) or are planning to buy many.
Based on you application you may have to rely on the manufacturer's supplied data and test in house to compare reliability (ideally with more than one sample of each microcontroller).
