Quality Fundamentals in the Digital Age

Concurrent Session

W21 - Realistic Design for Reliability in Digital Age of Electronics

Wednesday, May 2
9:30 AM - 10:30 AM
Location: WSCC 618-620

Level: Intermediate

With increasing reliance on electronic products in our daily lives, and increasing complexity of the products (and even more with the incorporation of internet of things), but the continuous shrinkage of development time for short time to market due to intense global competition, conventional reliability tests are too long to meet the time to market requirement. Realistic design for reliability (DfR) is becoming indispensable, and degradation physics cum digital computer simulation is a vital methodology for the development of realistic DfR. This session will present several actual case studies of this realistic DfR for electronic products.
