Virtual Qualification and Reliability Assessment
This course (Component level and PCB level) will provide the attendees with the knowledge necessary to apply such a methodology to the qualification of components and the reliability assessment of electronic systems. Each section provides introduction to physics-of-failure based virtual qualification and application specific reliability assessment. The course will demonstrate how to use manufacturer’s test data together with failure modeling to qualify a component for use in a particular application. The course will also demonstrate the application of this virtual qualification technique to the insertion of commercial components into high-temperature, high-power, automotive, and avionic applications. The use of virtual qualification for building reliability into power modules will also be discussed. The course will conclude with a discussion of the probabilistic nature of reliability assessment and with a demonstration of computer-aided tools for virtual qualification and application-specific reliability assessment.
