AOA sensor reliability?

Anyone know if the AOA sensors on the MAX are any different from the NG? If not, are their reliability issues with the NG AOA sensors?

Otherwise, what chance is there for another AOA sensor triggering a MCAS event just now, when there are thousands of NGs making daily flights with no issues?

It just doesn’t seem to make sense unless this is a new/different AOA sensor design, with a design flaw.
